Andy Pritchard born and bred in Hackney, where he was part of Britain’s first mixed-race generation of the sixties. By the age of 21, he was organising some of the largest illegal warehouse raves during the acid house party craze of the late 1980s. A successful entrepreneur and concert promoter for over 27 years, he revived the iconic Reggae Sunsplash festival and staged it in London. At the same time, he was also masterminding some of the world’s biggest drug smuggling operations and soon began appearing in the United States Department of Justice and D.E.A’s Annual Global Report and even featured in the Sunday People’s Criminal Rich List. In 2006, he was acquitted of a £100 million drug seizure case, before his criminal career was finally brought to an abrupt end. He had to face the consequences of his criminal past and it was whilst in prison, he made the big decision to change his life. Upon his release he formed a rehabilitation charity called the AP Foundation.
