The Inferno Music Conference has been organized since 2006 in conjunction with the Inferno Metal Festival. From being a small informal meeting place for industry and media that nevertheless came to the Inferno Metal Festival, it has now become a big conference. In 2022 we had a total of 243 delegates from 35 different countries, which makes it the largest metal music conference in the world! Inferno Music Conference is a unique offering for anyone who works with metal and who wants to find international partners.
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 conference is held at Clarion Hotel® The Hub
The Inferno family; artists and fans, media, and music industry will gather at the official festival hotel Clarion Hotel The Hub for happenings, partying, and a good night of sleep. During the Inferno week there will be Inferno pre- and after-parties in the bar, black-metal breakfasts, Inferno exhibitions and a hell of a lot of special treats for our guests. The Hub has Oslo's best location, right next to Oslo Central Station (Biskop Gunnerus gate 3).
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! Our main goal is to create the world's best and most important meeting place for the International metal music industry.
Equality - we're all red on the inside
Inferno Music Conference is an international music conference where everyone is welcome. All genders 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.
