Manager, UAF Music
Christian Lakatos started promoting events at 17 and has played a huge part in the Austrian electronic music scene since.
Following his great love for music, following years of running events, his university campus radio station, as well as DJing, Christian finally founded his Urban Art Forms Festival company in 2005, organizing the annual audiovisual event, which has grown from 9,000 attendees in 2005 to 75,000 in 2013. A few years later, he established his own music label: UAF Music.
The company quickly transformed into a full-blown artist management agency for electronic music – UAF MUSIC MANAGEMENT.
Since 2009, when Christian joined his festival company to Austria’s biggest promoter group Barracuda Holding, he has held the position of talent buyer and promoter for some of the holding’s most successful in-house brands, including Frequency Festival, Nova Rock Festival, Skalarmusic, Volume Music Magazine and – of course – his very own Urban Art Forms Festival.
After leaving Barracuda Holding in 2015 Christian joined FKP Scorpio & Four Artists Network and founded NUFORMS – a pure DnB&Bass Music Festival in Austria.
Today, UAF Music Management has established itself as the leading artist management agency for electronic music in Austria, running offices in Vienna and London to provide the best possible service for its talents, names including drum & bass favourites Camo & Krooked. Christian’s motto is to work with friends who become clients and with clients who become friends.
