Oliver Heldens

Team Behind Oliver Heldens

The Team Behind Series is one of ADE University’s best known and most popular panel brands, inviting the best teams behind brands, artists and festival organisations to go deep into their day to day operations. And this year we're happy to bring you the team behind Rotterdam's big room house superstar Oliver Heldens.


Oliver will send us over his team of agents and managers to explain how they helped Oliver break through as an artist, how they make his hectic schedule work while protecting him from the stresses of being a globe-trotting superstar DJ. They will also be looking into the importance of the Heldeep brand and how this works in combination with the Oliver Heldens name as a brand itself. You can hear all about the nuts and bolts of an organisation working at the very top level of dance music – coordinating with organisations like Ushaïa Ibiza, the BBC, and working with fellow stars like Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and Nile Rodgers. Find out what the future holds for Oliver as his managers and agents decide which paths to follow.
