The German rap pioneers have joined their long time booker Florian Hauss at Nitelive Artists.
Goodlive Artists GmbH, which is the booking and touring division of German live entertainment company Goodlive, has launched a new agency by the name of Nitelive Artists.
The new agency is headed by managing partner Flo Hauss, former CEO of German booking agency Four Artists Booking, who brings his entire roster with him to the new gig. It includes longtime Hauss clients and German rap pioneers Die Fantastischen Vier, alongside Fritz Kalkbrenner, Boys Noize, Digitalism, and others.
“Hauss will also continue working as the German promoter for the Black Eyed Peas and David Guetta,” the press release announcing the formation of Nitelive Artists states.
It continues: “The agency will focus on tour booking for German and international electronic/dance and pop artists along with artist management, festival and club consulting.”
Aside from Hauss, booking agents at Nitelive Artists include Tobias Klose and Torsten Rettert.
Hauss headed former German booking agency Four Artists Booking since long-time CEO Alexander Richter stepped down in November 2019.
Shortly after, FKP Scorpio announced the formation of a new agency with many former Four Artist Booking employees.
In June, German trade magazine Musikwoche reported that Four Artists had ceased operations, terminating the employment of the remaining employees, some of which have now found a new home at Goodlive.
Justus Mang, managing director at Goodlive Artists, commented: “I am thrilled to welcome Flo Hauss and his fantastic team to Goodlive Artists. He is an immense addition, both professionally and as a person. He also brings a lot of experience to the table and enhances our musical diversity. Our entire team is very much looking forward to working with him.”
Florian Hauss, managing director partner at Nitelive Artists: “I look forward to bringing my many years of national and international touring and booking experience to Goodlive, and I am very happy to have found a new home with my team after these challenging months.
“I am particularly proud that my entire roster has decided to join me on this new path loyalty and trust are not exactly commonplace in our business. We’ve got some very promising synergies with the structures at Goodlive Artists, not to mention a self confident market position that suits my ambitious p ersonal goals very well.”
Stefan Lehmkuhl, managing partner at Goodlive: “Flo Hauss has terrific musical competence; I am quite sure that he will be a valuable asset for touring and also give terrific new impetus to Goodlive festival business. We very much look forward to working with him and his team.”
Goodlive Artists also includes booking agencies Melt! Booking (rap, R&B, int. dance, int. pop alternative), Der Bomber der Herzen (German rap, German indie pop) and Full Force Concerts (metal rock heavy).
