By Erlend Buflaten Posted: 30. Sep, 2016

Finland – we’re coming!

The next stop on our Nordic tour is Music & Media in Tampere, Finland.

As part of our increased focus on the Nordic countries, we’ll attend conferences and showcase festivals a long with Norwegian industry delegates with special focus on the Nordic market.

Together with our very own Karoline, six Norwegian delegates will be at this year’s Music and Media. See who they are and what they do below!

Johan Husvik is head of Phonofile Sync, working with sync and licensing for the Phonofile catalogue. Phonofile is the leading indie distribution company in Scandinavia, representing over 1500 record labels with offices in NO, SE, DK, UK and USA.

Johan is looking forward to meeting record labels who want to learn more about the service as well as Music Supervisors and other people in the need for excellent music.

I look forward to make productive connections to music supervisors and others working with sync. I’m eager to attend the Get Synced! workshop and to hear the stories behind musical choices in “What Were They Syncing?”
