"Bedlam Bookings are always efficient, professional, and easy to work with. They know what they're doing, and their motivation to provide the best tours they can for their bands is born out of years as touring musicians themselves. They really are a by-musicians-for-musicians operation and care about the acts they work with."
“I always find Nic from Bedlam to be a pleasure to liaise with. His events are programmed professionally and run smoothly on the night. He is always cool to deal with, and I have never had any problems with him or his staff. Their lineups are a good standard and generally pretty well attended. If only all our promoters were so easy to work with!”
Working with Nic + the team at Bedlam as always been a pleasure, having had him as a Driver + TM with with a multiple of bands I have worked with, it's always been a smooth running operation.
