Phil Hutcheon

Speaker Bio

Having started his career in technology, Phil made a switch to the music industry, despite not knowing anyone, and joined a then-tiny label called Modular Records. Modular quickly became one of the world’s leading independent and influential record labels.

Phil became frustrated with how broken ticketing was. It always crashed, the user experience was terrible, and commercially it didn’t make any sense. Artists were playing venues for an agreed ticket price, only to find the final cost to fans was massively inflated with fees. Not only that, when the artists sold out the tickets were snapped up by scalpers at even higher prices. Fans were being ripped off and no one seemed to care. Phil saw a huge opportunity to build a platform in an industry that needed urgent reform.

DICE was launched in 2014 and has transformed how fans discover and buy tickets to live events and livestreams all over the world.

From A$AP Rocky to BICEP, Nick Cave to Primavera Sound Festival, from the up-and-coming, to the world’s biggest acts, DICE works with major artists, leading promoters, and renowned venues worldwide. In addition to a respected music offering, DICE offers fans an array of arts, culture, and lifestyle events. DICE is live in the U.K., U.S., France, Italy, Spain, India, and Australia - and accessible to fans globally through its livestream offering.
