Services

Everything we do revolves around two key words which are at the heart of everything we do; ‘reputation’ and ‘credibility’. We provide a wide range of services and deliver them in a bespoke fashion to our clients and partners. All strategy and activity implementation is overseen in-house with trusted 3rd party specialist agencies and leading industry experts brought in and managed by us as needed.

We work closely with certain key clients who require a necessary level of discretion that keeps our work for them and their achievements strictly confidential. For the most part we work with individuals, brands and organisations where exposure and public facing awareness are big part of what’s required. Increasingly we need to strike a balance between both worlds and it is here that we excel – we know how to ‘shout’ rather than ‘SHOUT’.

Advisory and Management

World Famous offers personal and commercial representation within a fully bespoke service. WFG act as manager, special advisor & agent to a wide range of individuals, organisations, agencies and rights holders on an exclusive, non-exclusive or consultancy basis.

Clients where we perform this far-reaching role range from individuals like Carl Cox, Bushwacka and Paul Oakenfold to organisations including English Heritage, Listen Up Therapy, The London Motor Show and Hawkwood International.

Within the artist management division, we oversee all commercial and profile aspects including literary, endorsements, film and television rights, brand activity, sponsorship and strategy as well as creating new projects for broadcast both nationally and internationally.

Client Focus: Carl Cox – Exclusive worldwide personal, business and commercial management.

Carl Cox always wanted to share his love of music with others and the ‘three deck wizard’ quickly became ‘The People’s Choice’ of the emerging scene. He has gone on to become one of the most globally renowned electronic music artists winning countless accolades including a record 34 consecutive DJ Mag nominations since the awards began.  Continuously performing as a headline DJ and live act worldwide, creating in the studio where he is a prolific remixer and recording artist, hosting his own ‘Playground’ at Burning Man or behind the wheel at the race track with his motorsports team, Carl is known for pushing boundaries and breaking down barriers.

Carl has the highest engagement across all social media and music platforms of any other electronic music artist. He has a uniquely loyal growing fanbase in the millions, spread across the world and includes most of his peers and most major artists. He has just signed a 3 album deal with BMG as a live recording artist and continues to cross over between the underground and major festival headliner worlds. He also has a large high net worth and design-led following who enjoy his special associations with brands like MV Agusta, GQ and Zenith and places including Ibiza, Burning Man and Glastonbury.

Under total secrecy and working hand in hand with English Heritage, we were able to set up, bring in an audience and licence music from the likes of U2, Andrea Bocelli and Hans Zimmer. Frontpage news all over the world, the audience were further treated to a B2B performance from World Famous client Carl Cox with permission granted for the first (and possibly last) time ever to dance within the sacred stones. Alongside a fundraiser, we released an album, a film, a stream with more to come.
