Buma ROCKS! goes USA, Dream Theater agent Keith Naisbitt and more panelists confirmed for conference

The fourth edition of Buma ROCKS!, the international conference and showcase festival for loud music, will take place on Saturday 4 June 2016. We are pleased to announce new names for the conference, but before Nijmegen happens Buma ROCKS! sets sail for Los Angeles to attend the Global Rock Summit and to present three great bands there: John Coffey, The Charm The Fury en Mandrake’s Monster. Tickets for Buma ROCKS! 2016 are set at € 45 and are available through the website.

Buma ROCKS! presents panels and bands at the Global Rock Summit, April 15 and 16 in LA

At the Global Rock Summit in Los Angeles the international rock scene gathers to speak about label and publishing signings, booking, management, festivals, synchs and other key activities. Attending the Summit on behalf of Buma ROCKS! are Frank Helmink (director Buma Cultuur and founder of Buma ROCKS!) and Janis van Lokven (Project Manager). On April 16th in the Blossom Ballroom of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel Buma ROCKS! will host the Keynote interview with Marco Collins, the legendary rock DJ who worked for station KNDD "The End" in Seattle during the 90's. Collins will be present at this year's Buma ROCKS! on June 4th. Frank Helmink will talk about Buma ROCKS! and the Dutch rock scene in The Live Entertainment Forum: Rockin' 360 Worldwide. Performing at the Global Rock Summit showcases are Mandrake's Monster, The Charm The Fury and John Coffey (photo below by Bart Heemskerk). We have no doubt that they will impress as much as they did in Groningen during Eurosonic Noorderslag, last January!
