Laura Coroianu

Laura Coroianu began her career in television, where she worked as an editor, presenter and producer, creating and coordinating in the 90s, the department of international artists at “Cerbul de aur” festival.

She lived abroad for 10 years, where she met her future life and business partner, Guido Janssens, with whom she built a business, organizing events and music consulting in the Netherlands. After several collaborations in Romania, they decided to bring the business to the country, and in 2005 they founded EMAGIC. In the last 15 years Emagic has opened the live events market in Romania, organizing the first major mainstream international festival in Romania – B’ESTFEST (2007-2013), large stadium concerts in Bucharest, Cluj and Timisoara with top international artists: DEPECHE MODE (Bucharest2, Cluj), RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, MADONNA, ROGER WATERS / THE WALL, STING, SHAKIRA, LADY GAGA etc), bringing to Romania over 800 artists from all continents.

In 2017 Laura Coroianu, together with Emagic, started a new project: AWAKE FESTIVAL, a boutique festival addressed to all creative communities in Romania, organized at Teleki Castle ( Gornești, Mureș), one of the most beautiful baroque castles in Transylvania from the 18th century.


Giorgiana Claudia Rusu

Claudia loves what she currently does and lives under the motto “One shouldn’t see work and enjoyment as a contradiction”, so she can best describe herself through her activities. Four years ago, she helped at Rocanotherworld and found her passion for organizing events and festivals, and since then she has grown with the festival.

Due to the experience of the festival, she became a member of the Creative Industries Association, the main organizer of Rocanotherworld and Classix Festival, where she develops projects in the cultural, artistic and educational field.

At only 24 years old, she still has a lot to learn and opportunities to pursue.
