’Half the things we’re offered are illegal,’ jokes Hugh Burrows,
who heads an Emap team handling sales for Mixmag, Q, Mojo, Select and
Kerrang!. He can’t go into details about these, so instead he says:
’Mixmag sponsored the dance festivals Creamfields and Homelands so I got
to go to both, gratis. I was on the stage when Paul Oakenfold and Seb
Fontaine were playing.
’Biggest of all is Glastonbury, which Select sponsors. Last time,
Radiohead had their Winnebago parked right next to my tent. The party
after the Q Awards was pretty colourful. And I get on club guest lists.
The only disadvantage is coming across as a shallow ligger.’
Perish the thought, Hugh.
