and Scott O’Neill and partner Carlo Scarampi.

Two U.K. live-music promoters, Communion Presents and FKP Scorpio, have merged to form Communion ONE. They've collectively promoted shows for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sam Fender and Lewis Capaldi.

The two companies will operate under one roof starting immediately. A board that includes Managing Directors Daniel Ealam, Mazin Tappuni and Scott O’Neill will lead the company.

Communion ONE will plug into FKP Scorpio’s European touring network, with offices in 11 countries and one of the largest festival offerings across Europe. FKP Scorpio sold 4m tickets across the region in 2023.

“Bringing our two brilliant teams together and combining our shared experience, resources and perspectives, is the most natural thing in the world," the MDs said in a joint statement. “In doing so, we believe that Communion ONE is creating an even more compelling proposition for our existing and future clients. We’ve all had amazing success so far, but in many ways, we’re only just getting started.”

The newly formed company will be producing a new three-night event series at Bristol’s 15k-capacity Queen Square beginning in 2025. It will continue to book tvg hospitality’s U.K. portfolio and its affiliate venues Lafayette, Omeara, The Social, and their new partnerships with Village Underground and EartH. Communion ONE also plans to expand its outdoor portfolio over the coming year.
