Bio: HMV is the UK and Ireland’s leading entertainment brand, enabling comprehensive access to much of today’s popular culture through its chain of stores and online and digital sites as well as through its growing live venue, festivals, ticketing & promoting and artist management operations. 

Established in 1921 through its landmark store in Oxford Street, and famous for its iconic ‘dog-and-gramophone’ trademark, 90-years-on entertainment brand HMV gets customers even closer to the artists and to the music, film and games they love whether in the home, on the move or via the ‘live’ experience. Unique in its ‘360-style’ offer, HMV enables choice through 250 stores offering a specialist selection of entertainment content and technology products; an online store at hmv.com and a download service at hmvdigital.com powered by 7digital (50% HMV owned). 

HMV is now also the country’s second-largest live music and ticketing operator: through its ownership of MAMA Group it has 13 venues and bars, including the iconic hmv Hammersmith Apollo, the hmvforum, the Jazz Café, Heaven, the Borderline, the Relentless Garage and Upstairs at the Relentless Garage in London as well as the hmv Picture House in Edinburgh, the hmvInstitute in Birmingham and the Ritz in Manchester, while it also operates G.A.Y. nights/bars in London and Manchester in association with legendary promoter Jeremy Joseph. HMV’s MAMA Group also owns and stages the annual Lovebox, High Voltage, The Great Escape, Global Gathering, Wilderness and the hmv Next Big Thing festivals, and also has an artist management division – SuperVision, that is home to the likes of Franz Ferdinand and The Kaiser Chiefs.
