Buma ROCKS! Heavy Panel @ Roadburn: Overcoming Barriers

Together with Buma ROCKS! the mighty Roadburn festival will host a network meeting on Friday 21 April to which the international music industry and press travelling to Roadburn will be invited. At 3.30 PM everyone with a Roadburn weekend ticket or a Friday ticket is welcome to attend the Heavy Panel entitled Overcoming Barriers. How can an ambitious band from the Netherlands (or any other country, for that matter) reach the broadest audience possible, overcoming geographical and business barriers? The panel will look at how bands playing Roadburn can use such experiences as a springboard to take their talent international. Panel members: Pip Soret (European label manager Relapse Records), Luc Favié (booking agent for Rock The Nation and Doomstar Bookings), Laster (the 2017 'Roadburn Introduces…' band), Kim Kelly (Editor at Noisey US), and Thomas Sciarone (member of Dutch post-everything band GOLD).
