Boyan Robert Pinter
Founder, Sofia International Music Conference
Boyan started his musical career as the guitarist in the band who also drove the van, booked the hotels, and took care of settlements. After two university degrees and seven years under the Texas sun, he went on to study Arts Administration at IU Bloomington, Indiana where he also joined the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival. Working his way up from backline manager, he became a full-fledged member of the production team in charge of artist relations and logistics.
Jumping across the pond and onto a Sting (Symphonicites) tour, Boyan joined the Bulgarian Live Nation partner, SME, with which he went on to promote and produce Aerosmith, Depeche Mode, Roger Waters, Steven Wilson, Al Di Meola, Nigel Kennedy, Cirque Du Soleil, Lady Gaga, Iron Maiden and counting.
Becoming a freelancer in 2017, Boyan started booking shows for Bulgarian fledgling festivals and established clubs.
He also got involved in music export initiatives, lending a helping hand to motivated musical artists who wanted to build international careers.
In the midst of a pandemic-riddled 2020, Boyan's company Pan Harmony, in cooperation with Blue Hills Events, managed to sell-out two concerts (at the maximum allowable 50% capacity) at the iconic Antique Theater Plovdiv.
During 2020 Boyan spent time learning how to make elaborate cocktails and learning new foreign languages, while assembling a team and resources to officially establish the Sofia International Music Conference, SIMC, the first of its kind on the Bulgarian music scene, dedicated to building networks and transferring knowledge to Bulgaria's ever growing independent music community.
