We are Lexicon Bookings, an Amsterdam based booking agency that represents an ever growing number of (inter)national artists throughout the Benelux. For a number of artists we also take steps beyond those borders and act as an European agent. We specialize in what we call “alternative popmusic”, which we define as artistically driven and forward thinking music, that is rooted in niches, subcultures, and non-mainstream genres, but also has the ability to appeal to a broader, more general audience. We simply love to amaze a big audience with all the great music that’s being made. Our artists play venues like Paradiso and Ancienne Belgique, festivals like Lowlands and Pukkelpop, but we also collaborate with more alternative organisations like Subbacultcha, Roadburn or Cafe Video.
As a company, we believe firmly in the concept of shared values, meaning that our partners (that’s artists, promoters, media, labels, etc.) all share a common attitude towards the music, but also towards out role in the music industry. As a booking agency we are a gatekeeper, and as a gatekeeper we have the position to make choices. By making these choices we champion this set of shared values we find really important; artistic development, inclusivity, equality and an open mind.
Although this might sound a bit theoretical, it basically comes down to common sense; we want to get cool people with great music and ideas heard. We are however aware of the fact that the music industry is often a vicious cycle where some cool people with great music are easier heard than other cool people with great music. We are also aware of the fact that as a gatekeeper, we can — and therefore have the responsibility to — actively make choices to break this cycle a bit. By doing so we do what we feel is important: contribute to a more inclusive, equal and forward thinking artistic environment and society in general. For our artists, our partners and our audiences.
We are keen on meeting new people and discovering new music. So if you share these ideas, want to submit music, or have questions or remarks, feel free to get in touch with us. We try our best to answer every email, and give everybody the attention they deserve. We hope to see you soon at one of our shows!
