The Inferno Music Conference has been organized since 2004 in conjunction with the Inferno Metal Festival.

The main topics of this year’s conference will be social media marketing, band management and touring in South America. There will also be art exhibitions, instrument clinics and the annual Inferno Metal Auction hosted by Tore Bratseth, the most brutal auctioneer Norway has to offer.

  • Green Festival

    Thursday 13:00 - 13:45 @ Bar

    Taking the bus rather than driving to work, recycling and separation of garbage, use of upcycled materials, monitoring carbon footprint of the festival… great, but scientists are increasingly pointing to a deeper lifestyle change that would be the single biggest way to help the planet; eating far less meat. How does that impact the changes in food area of a music festival? Boban and Nika from Metal Days Festival will share some first hand experience and detailed info about it.

  • Educate the fan: Things that should stay / shouldn’t stay behind the scenes

    Presented by Summerbreeze

    Friday 11:00 - 11:45 @ Room 1

    This panel, presented by Summerbreeze Festival, will focus on different ideas how (and how much) an artist, label or a festival should communicate with their audience. How much do you want to share with your fans? Is ‘the truth’ attractive – from live streaming your bathroom routine to covering your faces behind masks? Does feeling connected online equal a connection in real life, and how does this connection help you as an artist, label or as a festival?

  • Herding Cats 101: an insight into band management and management strategies

    Presented by BandOrg

    Friday 12:15 - 13:00 @ Room 1

    A band manager is someone who generally takes care of the business of a band, but that doesn’t mean the artist should be on top of their music career before a manager comes into the picture – or that there aren’t things you should be doing even if you have a manager on board. This panel will shed some light on some of the aspects of managing strategies and how the band manager is viewed by the rest of the music business.

    Friday 13:15 - 14:00 @ Room 1

    How important are major streaming services to the metal genre today? Is there any difference in planning a digital release in the metal genre?

    Dropoutmedia ///  Matt Bacon (US)

  • The End of Bands?

    Friday 13:45 - 14:45 @ Bar

    Anders Odden has a thesis that the traditional big bands are slowly fading out, retiring, and that they are replaced by concepts; that has the look of a band but can function more as a brand because the band members are less important than how they perform and what their sound is. Anders will discuss this with Robert Müller, and their combined experience within the metal music industry will make this a discussion you do not want to miss.

  • Gunnar Sauermann

    Gunnar Sauermann (DE) /// Wacken Open air/Metal Hammer

    Gunnar Sauermann is a trained archaeologist and comparative linguist with focus on Celtic and Nordic languages. In 1996, he founded a radio show entitled “Black Metal Art” at a local radio station in his hometown of Oldenburg, Germany. This proved to be fatal to his academic career in the long term as he got drafted by Metal Hammer as a writer in 2001. In 2008, forward-thinking French extreme metal label Season of Mist employed him as a promoter first in Marseille, France and later in their new Dutch office in Vaassen. After ten years as a glorified babysitter for bands, he left the company on amicable terms and started to work as press officer for the world’s largest metal festival, the Wacken Open Air, in Hamburg, Germany – where Gunnar works to this day. During all these years, he continued writing for Metal Hammer among other publications with a focus on Nordic and other black metal. Gunnar has attended every edition of the Inferno Festival so far starting with the first year. He is also quite literally married to Norway as his wife is from Bergen.

  • Roman Hilser

    Roman Hilser (DE) /// Silverdust GmbH / Summer Breeze Open Air

    Born in 1987 in the Black Forest (Southwest Germany) Roman realized at an early age that if you want to have a band, get around and play music you need to do it yourself. From promoting (small!) shows, touring with his and his friend‘s bands (Der Weg Einer Freiheit, ACxDC, Gorgasm, Fuck You And Die), merchandising, releasing/promoting music and diving into the (by then brand new) world of social media, Roman naturally grew his personal network in the German music scene. Due to recommendation, Achim Ostertag (founder Summer Breeze Open Air) recruited Roman in 2015 to take care of managing the media production on site and communicating everything you need to know about Summer Breeze online through all social media channels. Roman’s educational background (educational theory, psychology, philosophy) helps him a lot with his daily tasks, although he never finished his university career.

Art Exhibition

Christophe Szpajdel

Christophe Szpajdel is a graphic designer from Belgium who currently resides in England. After designing his first logo for the Finnish band Disgrace in 1990, he has drawn over 10,000 logos, mainly within the black and death metal and ambient music scenes. The amount of work he has done in the industry has lead him to be nicknamed the "Lord of the Logos", which was reinforced when he authored a book of the same name showcasing his design over the years. His most prolific logo design was for Emperor in early 1993. In the 2010's, Szpajdel has been exposed to major publicity after working with Foo Fighters and Rihanna.

Christine Linde aka Tomarum

Known for his attention to detail and historical accuracy, Christian's work has regularly adorned feature pages of magazines and festival stage backdrops and posters. Now based in Scotland, he continues to work with bands, record labels and brands throughout the world.

His portefolio includes artist like Ad Hominem, Blut Aus Nord, Ephel Duath, In the Woods..., Manes, Merrimack and Arcgoat. His exhibit will most surely be dark and gloomy.

Turid Aurora

Is best known for absurd, horror-humorous and very black series of Mortis Comoedia published in Norwegian Nemi and since 2015 regularly in the Swedish edition and in three books - La Danse Macabre (2008), Nekromani (2014) and Mortis Comoedia - A Collection Of Dark Comics To Tickle Your Humerus (2015). Turid Aurora have had several exhibitions with original drawings from these books (among other things at the Serie Gallery in Stockholm). So look forward to some interesting art and dark comics.

Christopher Rådlund

Rådlund lives and works since 1991 in Oslo. Rådlund moved from Sweden because of Norway's strong tradition of figurative painting, with Odd Nerdrum and several other exponents. During the 1990s, Rådlund strongly related to traditional Norwegian landscape painting, with examples such as Johan Christian Dahl and Peder Balke, and is therefore preferably regarded as "new romance", an epitome he, according to his own statement, has no problem with. It also follows that he has renounced modernism as a theory complex and has instead attempted to develop an artistry from tradition-related parameters. The painting is characterized by Scandinavian landscape motifs, without definite recognizable geographical connections, or as he himself expresses it; "I paint landscapes from the North Atlantic climate zone" and "unnamed landscape". Sea, sky, clouds, mountain massif, trees and forest groves are the typical motifs, often against a monochrome bluing background.

Metalheads against bullying

Metalheads Against Bullying was founded early in the year 2015 by Leif Munkelien. Founder Leif Munkelien was in 2008, after a severe back injury at work, put into 100% disability benefits. Leif has always wanted to work with children and young people, and this gave him the opportunity to follow his dream. As his strong passion for the organization grows, so does the opportunity for MAB to become Norway’s largest anti-bullying organization. Metalheads Against Bullying are today, the only anti-bullying organization with connection to the rock and metal environment.
