BUMA ROCKS! ACTIVITIES DURING FORTAROCK IN THE CITY, MAY 27TH, DOORNROOSJE NIJMEGEN

One more week before Buma ROCKS!, the international conference and showcase festival for loud music, rocks FortaRock In The City! Are you already in possession of a ticket to this great festival? We present performances by Ulsect, Pelgrim, DOOL and The Charm The Fury. We will host Heavy Chats, a matchmaking session for aspiring bands, composers, managers, booking agents and festival promotors in rock, metal and punk. Try your luck with The Wheel Of Steel Rock Quiz and drop by at the Q&A's with Metal Mike and Periphery’s Matt Halpern. But first: Buma ROCKS! on Penguin Radio!

In a special, one-off radio show of Buma ROCKS! on Pinguin Radio, Sunday May 21st between 22.00 hrs and midnight, this year's Buma ROCKS! Export Award will be handed to progressive metal band Textures by Frank Helmink, director of Buma Cultuur, and Peter van der Laan. Besides music by the winner, Helmink and Van der Laan will play a selection of heavy Dutch and international favourites. Direct link: www.pinguinplayer.com/#PinguinRadio.
Aardschok Radio is tuning in to Buma ROCKS! Radio as well on the 21st and will repeat the programme on Wednesday May 24th between 14:00 and 16:00 hrs.


BUMA ROCKS! Q&A'S WITH METAL MIKE AND PERIPHERY'S MATT HALPERN



Our first Q&A features Never Mind The Hype's Waldo Volmer vs Aardschok's Metal Mike! Mike is best known as the big man behind one of the world's longest running metal magazines (founded in 1980), Aardschok. For some decades now he has been running the radio programme and lately the internet radio channel of the same name as well. Waldo will lead Mike through Aardschok’s rough and tumble history, but there will be room to ask the man everything you have always wanted to ask him.
Do you want to know how to make a living in heavy music? Buma ROCKS! is proud to present a Q&A with one of metal's most prolific entrepreneurs, Matt Halpern. He is best known as the drummer for Periphery. He is also a founder of Bandhappy, The Entertainment Institute, and GetGood Drums. Matt is an award-winning drum educator and clinician, speaker, and co-host of the Chocolate Croissants Podcast. Chocolate Croissants? Come to Doornroosje's Foyer Upstairs and hear what that’s all about!
