Muzikantenweb – List Of 2012 on Music Credo

Happy New Year from Muzikantenweb team and may 2013 bring you even more festivals & concerts and interesting albums!

2012 was an exciting year in many ways: a year filled with many outstanding concerts, festivals and new music discoveries.  Also new team members were welcomed from all over the globe. Reporters from The Netherlands of course and also from Germany ,Sweden, England and nearby Belgium. It was always a dream to create an international music platform and it is finally happen after 3 years of Muzikantenweb on the new webzine Music Credo!

2012

Without the support of all the readers it wasn’t possible to continue this webzine. Also the huge amount of followers on Facebook totally surprised us. Thank you for finding us!

Most of all  ‘the music business’ deserves a salute and deep bow for their loyalty and trust over the years. All the local venues, PR at festivals (don’t forget the ‘vrijwilligers’), record labels, managements and of course the bands!

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you all; 2012 wasn’t an easy year for Muzikantenweb. Our team had to deal with some changes. Personally I couldn’t move the whole summer due to a twisted ankle and couldn’t report from all those great festivals. Luckily help is always there and I am very proud with the result!

The magical 1 million views in a month was reached already in February to continue with many new visitors. So let’s make 2013 a better one!
