Together with professionals in the music industry, they provide musical talent with the necessary information, advice and opportunities to conquer stages, get airplay and… well, just do what they love to do. Their target group is very large and varies from absolute beginners to professionals in any (popular) musical genre. Together with a team of colleagues Stijn tries to maximize play and media opportunities for emerging bands, musicians and DJ’s in pop, rock, dance and related genres. And this on a local, national and international scale. He has 10+ years of experience in working on successful projects like vi.be, playandproduce.be and excitemusic.eu.
Since the establishment of excite, Stijn is one of the driving forces behind the international network, providing bands with their first European touring experience.
