Goodlive Artists will continue to be represented nationally by the agency Der Bomber der Herzen GmbH & Co KG under the direction of Ilke Ulusoy. As Managing Partner, Florian Hauss will take over the strategic international development of Goodlive Artists. Justus Mang will continue to take care of business operations and the further development of the team.

Hauss is bringing his team and roster with him, which includes acts such as Die Fantastischen Vier, David Guetta, Justice, Fritz Kalkbrenner, and Boys Noize. They join the Goodlive Artists roster of representation in Germany, which includes artists such as Bonobo, The xx, Robyn, London Grammar, BICEP, Skepta, Stormzy, and Roisin Murphy.

Nothing will change in Goodlive Artists’ aim of representing the best artists in the genres of electronic music, rap and off pop. Company leadership prides itself on an “in-depth understanding of subcultures and trends,” according to the press release announcing the restructuring.

This understanding comes in handy when booking Goodlive’s festivals, which include Melt, splash!, Superbloom, Heroes, Full Force, Feel, and Artlake.

“I am very much looking forward to the new tasks and to managing together with Justus. We have a fantastic team with enormous potential and expertise. The merger of the two agencies was the logical, homogeneous step”, commented Florian Hauss, managing partner at Goodlive Artists.

MD Justus Mang added, “In the last 10 years, our booking department has been continuously growing whilst the musical spectrum has therefore been becoming broader. I am quite delighted with the decision to standardize our structures, communication and, accordingly, management.

“The exchange with Flo Hauss over the past few years has shown that our visions, values and business operations complement each other very well. I am very much looking forward to new tasks and the future collaboration with him.”
