ATC Live broke the news in September with a statement that read, “We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of our colleague and friend Chris Meredith.

“Our enduring memories of Chris will always be ones of laughter, joy and his love of his friends, family and artistes. He had touched the lives of many people and will be remembered with great fondness.”

Meredith worked with artistes such as The Mavericks, Estrons, Lucy Spraggan and LUCIA, as wellas Sleeper, who he brought back to touring after a break of after 20 years.

He also acted as festival director for Neverworld (5,000) festival in Kent and previously did stints as a booking assistant at ITB, Coda Agency and Nozstock: The Hidden Valley Festival (5,000).
