Geiger

Geiger’s blend of contemplative strategizing and assertive dealmaking have been a hallmark of his career going back to his days co-creating Lollapalooza and later ARTISTdirect. In 2019, he brought the juggernaut music gathering to Sweden utilizing WME’s festival division, the only one of its kind. He and his staff of 200 booked over 35,000 shows in 2018 and landed over 60 percent of the headliners playing the major U.S. music fests. Geiger facilitated many of WME’s notable recent signings, including Demi Lovato, Gwen Stefani, Juice WRLD, Marshmello, Rosalía and the Zac Brown Band. In addition, he recruited Lucy Dickins from International Talent Booking to run his agency’s U.K. music division — and brought along her clients Adele, Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling and James Blake. He left WME in June 2020.
