Meet the Dutch: Dutch Dance Labels As Gateway to International Success
14:30 - 15:15
The Dylan (D2 Panel Room) | Keizersgracht 384, Amsterdam
Holland is the home of some of the most leading record labels in dance music worldwide. But it’s not only the leading companies that are successful; Holland is a pressure cooker of dance music and lots of labels are doing a great job in breaking tunes and careers on a world scale. All these labels do not only release music from Dutch artists, but license music from all over the world.
Dutch trade organization for independent labels STOMP presents a couple of internationally successful Dutch independent dance labels and questions them on their success and failure in licensing music from artists and labels outside of Holland. We look into the do’s and don’ts of pitching your music and setting up relationships with Dutch dance labels.
This panel is a must for independent labels and artists who want to meet the Dutch dance industry and use it as a gateway to international success.
