Everything that is kind of on the indie spectrum suits me and our company.
What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music?
As a teenager I used to play drums but wasn’t any good. Early on, I accepted that I wouldn’t make it as a performing artist so I started touring and selling my friend’s merch at their shows and decided that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. In my university years, still working as a tourmanager, social media manager and basically everything people offered me, I got into PR & music journalism. Still so glad I found a proper job and doing what I love each day.
Which acts are you looking forward to seeing this year at SPOT?
I want to discover new talent, I am very much looking forward to see BEHARIE, HANNES, ORBIT, NOVAA and many more.
Best show you’ve ever seen hands down?
Eminem together with 50 Cent in 2003.
