Established in March 2016 by Joel Heywood, August MGMT offers representation and consulting to music artists, entertainers and clients across all scopes of the media, music and entertainment industries.

As a supportive management firm we are all about creating and building sustainable and rewarding careers, with consistency and connection in mind. We take genuine pride in working with our talent from the ground up to create, develop and implement effective and working strategies around their set goals. We understand there is not a one size fits all philosophy when it comes to managing our clients and with this in mind, we are proud to tailor our strategy and services to suit our clients on an individual and personal level.

Since coming on board with us at August MGMT our Artists have enjoyed successful single, EP and album releases supported by national PR campaigns, community & commercial radio airplay and placements across editorial streaming playlists. Our Artist’s regularly collaborate with leading and emerging songwriters, and producers and have featured on collaboration tracks. Over the years, we have secured distribution, licensing & publishing deals which has seen our Artist’s music get placements across commercial television programs, feature films and international ad campaigns. Each year, they lend their names to charitable, not for profit organisations and campaigns, and are often approached to appear across television and media platforms, collaborations and projects. On the performance front, our Artists are kept busy with live shows, national tours, support slots, venue shows, curated events, and appearances at niche/major festivals to support their releases. We also book other performances across the corporate, community, sporting and leisure events sectors.

At August, we are focused on high quality service delivery. Not only to the service we provide our clients, but also the industry professionals and stakeholders we interact and work with daily. We are passionate about teamwork, diversity & inclusion, collaboration, equal opportunity, recognition for effort and working cooperatively to come up with the best solution, and a win-win for all.
