The annual Inferno festival is highly popular as a get-together for metal music performers, businesses and others involved in the scene. This year’s innovation is speed meeting, giving participants the chance to exchange news and views over a 90 minute session with up to 15 people, a similar setup to speed dating.
A seminar on the 2011 music business and an internet promotion workshop focusing on social networking as a new window to the world will draw many metal businesses.
The heart of the conference and its main attraction will be the 45 bands taking part. Participatory vents, unless otherwise listed, will take place at Oslo’s Hotel Royal Christiana. Thousands of visitors are expected to arrive for Inferno, putting a strain on available accommodation, both in Oslo and around Oslo Airport, according to DirectRooms.com, who are recommending early booking of Oslo Airport hotels (http://directrooms.com/
