Buma ROCKS! partners with LA’s Global Rock Summit
We had it coming after last year’s mutual interest: in 2015 Buma ROCKS! joins forces with its sister conference for heavy music, the Global Rock Summit in Los Angeles. If you’re both aiming to encourage and inspire the international rock music community, work together, right?! Similar to Buma ROCKS! the GRS presents forums featuring some of rock’s leading visionaries, who will offer their perspectives on today’s rock music business. Artists, managers, labels, publishers, agents, promoters, brands, media, etc. join in to discuss what it takes to make it in heavy rock and then stay on top of your game. The partnership will see event organizers Frank Helmink (initiator of Buma ROCKS! and Managing Director of Buma Cultuur) and Sat Bisla (founder of Global Rock Summit) attending and participating as part of each other’s event programming. Additionally, the conferences will feature some of the best new emerging rock talent from around the world through various showcase events.
