’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!.

I was on the stage when Paul Oakenfold and Seb Fontaine were playing.

’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.
