New Mastermind: Hans van Rompaey, project manager Lowlands Festival


Hans Van Rompaey (1971, Mortsel, Belgium) started out as a gossip-journalist for TVStory in the early nineties, the golden age of Belgian commercial TV. Nonetheless, everything worked out fine in the end: from 1996 onwards, Van Rompaey worked for various record companies, among which 4 years for Play It Again Sam where he worked closely together with a string of renowned Belgian rock bands such as Soulwax, Das Pop, Mauro, Millionaire and doing local promotion for international
acts such as Garbage, De La Soul and Bonnie `Prince` Billy.

Since 2002 Van Rompaey is project manager for the Lowlands Festival, a 55.000 capacity Music & Arts Festival in Biddinghuizen, Holland. He is responsible for the marketing, publicity & overall coordination of non-music programming of the festival. He lives in Amsterdam.
