The Belgian company is now part of the All Things Live Network.

Belgium’s local booking agency Busker Artist Agency joins the fast-growing network of All Things Live. 
Busker Artist Agency represents some 60 local music acts across multiple genres, including Belgian pop, rock, hip-hop, R&B and soul. The roster includes Selah Sue, Coely, Eefje de Visser, STUFF., Zwangere Guy, Tourist LeMC, Gabriel Rios and many more.
The agency was involved in around 700 shows in Belgium during 2019, by its own admission.
It marks a notable step outside the Nordics for All Things Live. 
Said Busker Artist Agency founder and CEO Werner Dewachter: “I am very pleased that Busker will become a member of the All Things Live family as this exciting move allows us to take our business to the next level after two decades and thousands of amazing live experiences
in Belgium.
“All Things Live will broaden our network and support our growth and we will strengthen our position amongst Belgian artists as well.”
Alongside the acquisition, All Things Live also announced new hirings.
Marcus Deblaere joins Busker as senior promoter and head of festivals. He brings with him experience as a concert promoter at Ancienne Belgique Brussels, which led Pollstar’s Magna Charta in the Club category two years in a row. Ha also worked at Trix Antwerp and as creative manager at music management company Musickness. 
Together with Werner Dewachter, he will coordinate Busker’s day-to-day management.
Deblaere commented: “The combination of Busker Artist Agency and All Things Live entails great opportunities. In close collaboration with Werner and our new Nordic colleagues we will be able to set up creative and challenging concerts, festivals and live events, support our beloved Belgian artists and scene, and export some of the great Belgian successes to the interesting Nordic and European markets.”
Senior booking agents Bjorn Nuyens and Willem Vandesande also join Busker. Vandesande used to work as concert promoter (All Eyes On Hip Hop), and independent booker. Nuyens runs is own independent Ampersand Artist Agency.
