'Hopvoeding' - Hip hop congres

Are you an artist, producer, or DJ? Do you have the ambition to build a professional music career? Or are you simply a fan of hip hop?

Welcome to HOPVOEDING, the hip hop congress!


/ 11 AM - 1 PM: LEVEL UP - FULL!

The perfect moment to give your music career that extra push.

Wherever you are in your career, take it to the next level during LEVEL UP. In 1-on-1 sessions of 20 minutes, you will be guided in all facets of professional music making. You can participate in:

  • Professional photoshoot with RAIA and Dandy Fuego for promotional photos that you can use for social media, press, flyers, and more!
  • Have your demo listened to and get feedback from top professionals in the Belgian and Dutch music industry, such as Mojo bookings, Sony Music Publishing, Warner Music Benelux, Top Notch, Bumaye bookings, and more to be announced.
  • Create your technical rider: never arrive at a gig without the right equipment! We ensure that your show runs smoothly technically.
  •  EHBio! First aid for your bio: captivating, mysterious, or straight to the point... a good bio demands attention and ideally holds it.
  • Let's get social: ask all your questions about content roll-out, marketing & social media.
  • From play to playlist: how to get your own music on Spotify? Learn about independent releasing, online distribution, and so much more.

All LEVEL UP sessions are full, but you can still register on the waiting list via femke@bumaye.be. In your email, provide a brief explanation of your involvement in music and which parts you would like to participate in. You can select 3 sessions of 20 minutes. LIMITED SPOTS!

By invitation only

/ 2 PM - 6 PM: TALKS

  • The self-made manager:
    Due to a shortage of managers, more and more artists are handling their own management or someone from the entourage starts as an artist manager. Does this rise of 'self-made' managers hinder the professionalism of the local hip hop music sector, or does this new energy break down the walls the genre sometimes faces? with Miss Angel, Bert De Swert (manager of Blackwave, among others), and Arthur Arsenyan (manager of Makar, Leblanco, etc.)
  • Sevn Alias:
    Sevn Alias looks back one last time on his music career.
    Moderator: Jolien Roots
  • Koolcast: Everything is content, content is everything?
    What is the role of media in an artist's story, and can an artist become their own media outlet? In this talk, Koolcast discusses with a number of guests (TBC) the importance of a well-developed media story.
  • One more talk TBA!

/ 6 PM onwards: DJ SET

Stick around, have a drink, and chat during a DJ set (DJ to be confirmed).
