The Inferno Metal Festival has been the most important music festival in Norway for the metal genre since 2001 and is held every year at Easter at Rockefeller and John Dee as well as local clubs in Oslo. Around 300 international delegates (press / labels / producers / artists etc.) visit the festival every year.

The Inferno Music conference will continue developing a platform that facilitates networking and expertise building for the professional metal industry in years to come.

We are all dead on the inside.


Inferno Music Conference is an international music conference where everyone is welcome. Male, female from any continent, we all have a strong common denominator; metal music. We work diligently to help create a well-mixed collection of women and men from all over the planet. Unfortunately, we see that there is an uneven distribution of gender in today’s industry and do what we can to contribute in this area.

The main goal

Social meeting points

The music business is always changing. To achieve long-term survival, a business must develop and adapt with the times. Inferno Music Conference creates an opportunity to keep up with the changes and to expand networks. Our genre is strong and narrow, and we love it
