The Power 50: Nicholas Greco & Michael Christidis

The 50 most influential people in the Australian music industry.

Nicholas Greco and Michael Christidis got their start by hosting weekly Treehouse events at Melbourne’s Inflation in 2012, then moving onto the Palace Theatre with their Anyway nights. Soon after their dream of their own festival was realised with the launch of Beyond The Valley over New Year’s Eve 2014/2015. They’ve operated as Untitled Group since 2017 along with partners Fil Palermo, Tom Caw and Christian Serrao.

Kicking off a festival with acts like Tyler, The Creator and RÜFÜS DU SOL as headliners on the debut bill is a pretty strong move - and that’s exactly how Nicholas Greco and Michael Christidis launched their latest offering, Wildlands, in December.

That was just one of many successes for the pair in 2019; among them having Beyond The Valley festival sell out in less than a minute, expanding their Grapevine Gathering to Western Australia (and selling out nationwide), expanding For The Love festival into a touring event, expanding their management roster which now includes acts like Boo Seeka, Owl Eyes, Lastlings, Jordan Brando, Big Words and more, launching All Night Records, touring artists like Running Touch, Bag Raiders and more, selling over 200,000 tickets across their events and expanding the Untitled Group team to 15 people.

"Beyond The Valley selling out in one minute was such a surreal experience. It was a goal we had been working towards for the past six years and a great moment to share with our entire office and all of our supporters." NG
