‘As the Netherlands won the Eurovision Songcontest in May of this year, and the city of Rotterdam is hosting the event in 2020, we happily decided to move our dates to May 29th -May 31st’, says Henca Maduro. “We love the fact that the whole world now gets to see how amazing the city of Rotterdam is exactly, so we absolutely have no problems, altering the dates”, continues Maduro.
New Skool Rules, a 3 day urban music conference as well as music festival, will celebrate their 8th edition. They have grown substantially, since the beginning in 2009. New Skool Rules is the largest international urban music conference in the world. Every year we bring the most influential Movers & Shakers in the Music Industry to the Netherlands, to sit on panels and scout the best new producers, songwriters, artists etc. New Skool Rules has proven to be THAT PLACE where the next BIG international star is discovered. In the past New Skool Rules has had the pleasure of providing a platform for several succesfull acts like Nico & Vinz (with the worldhit Am I Wrong), R.City (had a mega hit Locked away feat. Adam Levine), Fais (Huge hit with Afrojack called HEY) and recently saw New Skool Rules Anthem collaborator Nicole Bus score her first number #1 hit record on the Billboard Charts.
In 2020 New Skool Rules will feature even more showcases, panels, workshops, masterclasses but will also have demo listening sessions, auditions and jamsessions. In the week before New Skool Rules there will be 5 major writing camps with more than 200 creatives participating from all over the world. The New Skool Rules festival will feature events all through downtown and will once again throw a crazy boatparty, cruising the Rotterdam Harbour.
In 2019 more than 1800 delegates participated in New Skool Rules and the New Skool Rules Pre -Events and more than 7500 people came out to check out the performances during the 3 days.
