The Co Waterford-born, London-based self-made mogul started his Mean Fiddler empire in 1982 with one humble yet revolutionary venue: innovations at The Mean Fiddler in Harlesden included cold Budweiser beer, a proper PA system and decent showers for the bands.
The Fleadh, Benicassim, and the Reading & Leeds festivals all soon followed as part of an illustrious career in the live music industry.
Having also run the likes of Madstock, The Phoenix Festival, Tribal Gathering and Homelands, in 2001 Mean Fiddler overhauled Glastonbury, revitalising it for the 21st century.
