Nigel Adams MP
The Member of Parliament for Selby and Ainsty in North Yorkshire is chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Music and sits on the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee. Nigel has been active in campaigning against unfair practices in the secondary ticketing market and has recently helped secure government legislation which outlaws the use of computer 'bots' for the purchase of event tickets which are then resold. Nigel also managed to get a law change to protect gig and festival goers by criminalising the use of flares and fireworks by crowds at music events. He is a live music fan and cites Green Day, Blink 182 and Muse among his favourite bands.
