Generation Noir Booking & Tourmanagament History Lesson:
Hi, My name is Florin Koller (they/them) and I run this thing mostly on my own. I come from a Hardcore/Punk Background and started booking DIY-shows at the age 14 – in Steyr and later Linz, Upper Austria.
After moving to Vienna in 2010 I started booking shows here in 2012. Together with my former booking partner Martin I founded „Generation Noir“ and after a year booking as a duo, most of the shows were organized on my own, with the help of amazing friends and colleagues I booked 300+ bands and artists raging from different gloomy genres: from Celeste, Wiegedood until Kaelan Mikla and Mochat Doma, always combined with cool local acts.
I have at 15+ years experience in booking, touring, recording, organizing different forms and scales of events from Concerts, lectures, DJ-nights etc. and got a diploma in Music management.
That’s why I decided in September 2021 that I have enough contacts and capability to put GN a few steps higher and brand it new: Generation Noir & Booking & Tour management.
After hearing too many stories about unreliable booking agencies from befriended artists & acts the idea was born to just help out people I like on a personally and musically level.
Only 4 months later this went a little more professional and here we are:
11 amazing artists and bands that I will take care of in the first year.
The main focus is to not concentrate on cisdude-only projects, but to let the others speak: the queers, the marginalized, the outsiders. They make the better music anyway.
Get to know them in the Artists section and hit me up if you wanna book them for your next club-show, festival or garden party. They all equally deserve your attention.
