Loud Noise and Into The Grave merging!
Loud Noise and the Into The Grave Festival are merging. Starting October 1st, the activities of the Eindhoven based booking agency and the festival from Leeuwarden will be under one roof.
Paul van Berlo of Into The Grave and Tjerk Maas of Loud Noise started working together on the Dynamo Metalfest, which was first held on July 18 of this year and was sold out. The new company will keep the Loud Noise name and will house the Dynamo Metalfest (Eindhoven), Into The Grave (Leeuwarden), Into The Void (Leeuwarden) and Cityrock (Leeuwarden) festivals together with the booking activities and the worldwide agency network with artists like Vandenberg’s Moonkings, Metal Church and upcoming talent like Vektor and Noctum.
Paul van Berlo is enthusiastic about the merger;” Loud Noise is a company that’s been around since the late 90’s en has built a solid reputation, in The Netherlands and abroad by working with renowned artists in the metalscene. Our cooperation on Dynamo Metalfest went really well and quite soon we saw opportunities if we joined forces”.
“We can now start working on putting our solid roster of artists and festivals on the map, on a bigger scale. Artists who are looking for a new agency, tend to find a company which also houses good sized festivals in their genre, a tad bit more interesting than the competition. And I’d say that having festivals like Into The Grave or Dynamo Metalfest pretty much qualifies you for that”, according to Tjerk Maas.
