Buma Rocks! 2018

BUMA ROCKS! @ ESNS 2018

The 2018 edition of Eurosonic Noorderslag in Groningen sees several activities by Buma ROCKS! as we are partnering with ESNS LOUD. From this year on, ESNS LOUD is the right place for everyone involved in the European loud music business to meet, hang out, discuss, party and enjoy the music on offer. ESNS LOUD will consist of a conference part at Oosterpoort and a live music part at club LOLA.

ESNS LOUD - Are we evil (enough)? - presented by Buma ROCKS!
For the fifth year in a row, Buma ROCKS! presents a panel discussion during ESNS. This time we focus on the future of loud music in Europe. Is the scene doing alright? Are we still inspired? Do expectations of bands and audiences change? We dragged four loud music specialists straight from the trenches to discuss this and more.
