INFERNO MUSIC CONFERENCE – Presenting the first additions to the 2023 program
Inferno Music Conference 2023
After an eventful 2022 with the industry getting back on track, we are now looking forward to the Inferno Music Conference 2023. As always, there are new and timeless challenges to be discussed, stories to be told, and people to meet. There will be eight panels per day divided into two rooms during the two days of the conference. The conference takes place at Clarion, the Hub in Oslo, on the 6th and 7th of April from 11.00 – 15.30 both days. The Hub is the official hotel for the Inferno Metal Festival. The Hub will accommodate artists, delegates, and the festival audience. As night falls, we let the day slip away into the darkness, knowing the night brings some amazing metal acts to the stage at Rockefeller. Now, let’s look forward and evaluate the past. Here are the first panels.
The power of a live concept: Bringing theatre to the metal stage
We have all seen colossal concert productions focusing on theatrical concepts. It might seem obvious that this dramatically impacts the audience, lifting the experience to another level. However, still, most artists don’t use this or tap into it subtly. We want to explore the benefits of creating a musical universe and a story playing out theatrically, live, and on albums. The story might capture the audience, make the musical experience more immersive, and in the end, increase revenue.
Audience Flow: Creating the perfect open-air festival area layout
A successful festival is more than just creating a great lineup. Giving the audience paths so they can move around the festival quickly and easily makes a great impression on the experience at the festival. Directing the flow through a sales funnel to increase revenue for vendors, or not? Logistics and placement of necessary facilities without obstructing other areas. There are many solutions and views on the subject. Let’s talk about open-air Festivals!
The second wave: The influence of Massacre(CO)
During the early days of Black Metal, the music was chaotic and destructive. Many bands took it upon themselves to do everything in their power to deviate from all other genres. The music was a riot against conformity, religion, and structure. They were depicting the chaos of young minds.
But the musical direction was not a local occurrence in Norway alone. There was communication and demo tape trading between Norway, Colombia, and many other countries. In this interview, we will hear the story from the Colombian side. One of the oldest black Metal bands from Medellin, Massacre, will be doing an in-depth talk with Harald Fossberg and Kjetil Manheim, one of the original members of Mayhem
Platforms and Social Media Consumption
Many platforms have been predicted to be the leading media to reach the masses. Our presence online is continually growing. Trends come and go. Is it necessary to keep up with the never-ending change to achieve viral success? Or is it beneficial to set a steady course and do your own thing?
Connect the industry and make it stronger; we hope to see you in Oslo on Easter 2023
