Charlie Jones exited Austin-based C3 Presents in January.

Former C3 Presents founder Charlie Jones has announced the launch of his new company Four Leaf Productions which will focus on creating live experiences that bring people together for a purpose.

Jones is a veteran promoter and producer who has worked in the music industry for 25 years. Alongside colleagues Charles Attal and Charlie Walker at C3 Presents, Jones became one of the nation’s most successful independent promoters. C3 Presents was responsible for producing events such as the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Lollapalooza, various Presidential Inaugurations, and the NFL Draft, among countless others.

Jones exited C3Presents in January to pursue other interests.

“I am very proud of what we created at C3. We set a higher standard both in the office and at our events. The C3 team is the best in the business,” said Jones in a release. “My purpose going forward with Four Leaf Productions, and my valued partners, is to use our collective experiences to create live events that help build an inclusive and respectful culture in our society -- one that builds bridges and shines a bright light on shared values. I’m excited about the opportunities ahead of us.”

The mission of Four Leaf Productions is to creatively, passionately and fearlessly produce experiences staged with live music and interactive discussions that will first entertain and also enlighten and inspire both the fans and the communities in which these events will be produced.

The senior leadership team of Four Leaf Productions includes industry veterans Shelley Phillips, Karly Tuckness and Courtney Fisher, all of whom are partners in the new company.

“Charlie Jones is one of the most genuine people I’ve met in this industry,” said Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons, who has worked with Jones. “His passion for music, and especially for the experience of music fans, is obvious when you go to any event he is a part of. His integrity, honesty and discretion is what sets him apart, not just as a promoter but as a friend.”

“Charlie has a unique combination of heart and skill to bring people together to experience the collective joy that live music brings to humanity,” said CAA chief innovation officer and partner Michelle Kydd Lee. “I am personally excited to see what incredible projects Four Leaf will thoughtfully bring to fans and communities.”

The headquarters of Four Leaf Productions will be in Austin.
