FKP Scorpio UK and Communion have merged to form Communion ONE, and will operate under the same roof with immediate effect.

The newly formed organisation will be led by a board featuring managing directors Daniel Ealam, Mazin Tappuni, and Scott O’Neill.

The non-executive leadership team is formed by Communion Music’s managing director Jamie Emsell, Communion’s co-founders Kevin Jones and Ben Lovett, FKP Scorpio’s chief executive and founder, Folkert Koopmans, and the promoter Carlo Scarampi as a partner.

“Bringing our two brilliant teams together and combining our shared experience, resources and perspectives, is the most natural thing in the world,” Ealam, Tappuni, and O’Neill 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.”

Communion ONE is set to produce a new three-night event series at Bristol’s 15,000 capacity Queen Square from next year, as it plans to expand its outdoor portfolio over the coming 12 months.

The group is also comprised of Carly Rockett in the position of head of operations and Julie Morgan, Olly Goddard, Rich Cheetham, Mike Werbowy, and Jack Dedman as heads of marketing, ticketing, production, finance and venue programming, respectively.

The team has promoted events for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Noah Kahan, Sam Fender, and Lewis Capaldi.

Communion ONE will utilise FKP Scorpio’s European touring network with offices in 11 countries, which sold four million tickets for live events across the continent in 2023.
