Artists & Creatives
Gus Robertson is probably one of the busiest guys in rock’n’roll. Guitarist, impresario, DJ, creative director, curator, promoter - he knows how to make a show go off from every angle.
Of note, over the past fifteen years, Gus has toured the world playing lead guitar for a band called Razorlight, curated immersive rock’n’roll shows known as “The Great Brain Robbery” at some of the UK’s leading festivals, run two iconic Victorian London venues – the 20th Century Theatre and Bush Hall, and established a new theatre in a disused bus depot in Notting Hill - The Playground Theatre.
With West London qcollective Rotten Hill Gang, Gus has worked with a host of celebrated musicians including Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of The Clash, reggae icons Max Romeo and Dawn Penn, Ian Hunter of Mott The Hoople and Paul Cook of The Sex Pistols. NME describe him as “Gus Robertson - the authentic one”, while Mick Jones declared his playing as the ‘best guitars on a hip hop record so far”.
Gus is founder curator of “The Great Brain Robbery” – high-octane immersive parties that incorporate iconic legends, cutting edge new musical talent, madcap DJs and wild performance artists, with each night curated around a bespoke theme. The Great Brain Robbery runs stages at festivals across the UK, which have included Wilderness, Secret Garden Party, Standon Calling, How The Light Gets In, Curious Arts Festival, Vaults Festival and Portobello Live.
Gus also runs a creative events agency “Gus Robertson Presents”, which provides exceptional entertainment to those seeking the extraordinary, as well as creating bespoke experiences, tailored to tantalise the imagination. His roster comprises world class musicians, international DJs and cutting-edge performance artists, supported by experienced audio visual, set design and stage management teams.
