Hamburg/Berlin - Hamburg-based concert and festival promoter FKP Scorpio and Berlin-based booking agency Area One are starting out together with immediate effect under the name FKP AREA ONE. Folkert Koopmans, CEO of FKP Scorpio, is taking over the management of the newly founded agency FKP AREA ONE, based in Berlin, together with Joe Rambock and Thorsten Schauf. Marv Thomas, who has been working with Rambock and Schauf for a long time, will continue to do so for FKP AREA ONE.

The agency Area One has made a name for itself with rock and metal tours and concerts by well-known artists such as Slayer, Volbeat, System Of A Down, In Flames, Queens Of The Stone Age, Bullet For My Valentine or A Day To Remember and Machine Head. Schauf and Rambock's artist roster also includes some of the hottest British pop acts such as Ellie Goulding, Hurts, Belle & Sebastian and Bastille as well as Germany's biggest country rock band The BossHoss.

Their varied artist portfolio offers a useful addition to the versatile FKP Scorpio artist roster. At the same time, through FKP Scorpio, Rambock and Schauf can draw on an experienced team with an international network and Europe-wide festival portfolio.

"I have known and appreciated Joe and Thorsten for a long time and am pleased that through them we can further strengthen and expand our portfolio, especially in the rock sector." Stephan Thanscheidt, CEO FKP Scorpio, is optimistic about the cooperation.

Folkert Koopmans, CEO FKP Scorpio: "With Joe and Thorsten we complement our musical programme with genres and artists that are especially important for the international orientation of our business. I look forward to growing even further in this area with them and the teams across Europe."

Joe Rambock and Thorsten Schauf: "We look forward to partnering with Folkert and Stephan and the entire FKP Scorpio team. Together with the FKP Group, we will open an exciting new chapter. Back to the future (of music)!"
