Leila established the Moonbeams brand in 2007 with the aim of promoting concerts, festivals and live music in Yorkshire. The immediate success of this saw Leila create and manage the Moonbeams Festival which is now in its 11th year and achieving a sell out within two hours of tickets going live.


Leila’s infectious energy and professionalism has also seen her undertake a number of compère and stage management roles for major festivals such as Cambridge Folk Festival, Shrewsbury Folk Festival and Underneath the Stars as well as Production Assistant at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.


Alongside her role as promoter and festival organiser, Leila has over 5 years experience as a Live Agent, firstly with Adastra (now STRADA) before accepting the role of Live Agent with Apex Music International.
