Jessica Ducrou Leaves Secret Sounds Group

Jessica Ducrou
Founder and Publisher. Based in Brisbane.
Howard started Scene Magazine in 1993. Paul Keating was Prime Minister. Whitney, Janet and Mariah all had Aussie #1s and Mark Zuckerberg was 9. He (Howard, not The Zuck) likes Star Trek and a good Oxford Comma – way too much fun at parties.

The co-founder of Australia’s iconic music festival, Splendour in the Grass, and co-CEO of one of the country’s largest music groups Secret Sounds, Jessica Ducrou has announced her departure from the company she helped create eight years ago.


Secret Sounds Group (a part of Live Nation) is one of the largest music groups in Australia. It represents Splendour in the Grass, Harvest Rock, Falls Festival, Secret Sounds Touring, Village Sounds booking agency, Secret Sounds Connect commercial rights and creative agency, North Byron Parklands, The Triffid venue in Brisbane and others.

Ducrou said: “So many memorable moments over the last almost decade with Secret Sounds, what a wild ride it’s been. I’m well due for an overseas summer holiday so it’s a good time to take a break before I embark on my next chapter.

"It has been an epic journey that has been truly inspiring, and an opportunity to collaborate with the best in the business. It would not have been as rewarding, possible or enjoyable if it weren’t for the people I have worked alongside of. Paul Piticco has been a great business partner for more than 30 years and we will no doubt continue our friendship well into the future. The Secret Sounds team, notably Elise Huntley and the festivals gang, are the absolute best, I will miss working with the awesome individuals who inspired me every single day. I wish all at Secret Sounds and Live Nation the very best success in their future endeavours.”

Jessica will take some time out to spend with her children, do some traveling and attempt to read a book from start to finish before she looks to her next chapter. In the interim, Jessica will continue her duties as Chair of SoundsNSW and advocate for the festival space as Deputy Chair of the AFA.
