Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Live Nation is the world's leading live entertainment company, sitting at the top of the market in live events and ticketing. Formed in 2009, it is a major international company, with key business segments made up of concerts, ticketing, and sponsorship and advertising.

Despite its dominant position in the market, the company saw an 84% drop in revenue during 2020 and the closure of live events. Since then, however, demand has been stronger than ever for their ticket sales. This is a reflection that live events remain a clear priority for consumers and has been further reflected in Live Nation's acquisitions of companies - like Goodlive - that complement and bolster Live Nation's portfolio.

In addition to live events, a key area to watch for Live Nation will be the rise of online concert streaming, like that undertaken by competitors such as Driift. Major festivals such as Glastonbury have trialled online concerts with mixed reviews. If it proves successful, this could be a major new section of the entertainment market and a big potential part of Live Nation's future ventures.

  • Live for entrepreneurship - Employees who thrive here are self-starters who are experts at what they do. While we give a tremendous amount of independence to our employees, we are also precise and exacting about performance. There is no hiding behind process here. You are evaluated on your results and concrete contributions to our business
  • Live for focus - We have a long “To Do” list but an even longer “Not To Do” list. As the demand for live events continues to grow across the globe, we have to stay focused on our core mission of connecting artists with their fans for those magical hours of live music
  • Live for talent - We believe talent comes from any place or background. This is not a place for elitists. We hire people for who they are – hard workers who deliver results and are passionate about what they do
