Laetitia

Laetitia is the founder of Five Oh, the creator of Fifty Session, the co-creator of Fifty Lab and the mother of the house.

Laetitia Van Hove has more than 10 years of experience in the music industry, working for major EMI MUSIC for 7 years before moving to Paris to work for an independent label and subsequently moving back to Brussels to set up her own structure now called Five Oh.

Her experience as promotion manager as well as product manager make her the perfect person to strategically build an artist’s profile and career. Addicted to social networks and streaming platforms, and always curiously looking into new evolutions, her approach offers a digital strategy as well as classic media representation, with a network extending from underground to national press, including the most influential Belgian tastemakers.

At EMI, she worked as Product and Promotion Manager for artists such as Coldplay, Lenny Kravitz, David Guetta, Sigur Ros, Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, Julien Clerc, Alain Souchon, Raphael, Indochine and many others.

As founder of Five Oh, she worked with artists such as Angèle, Roméo Elvis,  Indochine, Flavien Berger, Bagarre, Petit Biscuit, Tim Dup, Yseult, Lous and The Yakuza, Odezenne, BRNS, Ozark Henry, Brigitte, PNL, Flume, … and many others.

Laetitia also created the Fifty Session concept, a trendsetting Brussels based private event presenting emerging artists, and is co-creator of Fifty Lab, the international showcase festival that takes place every year in Brussels.

Priscilla

Priscilla is an irrepressible thinker that highly values creativity and thinking outside the box. This motto gives her the ability to appreciate and stand for any music content that feels just right.

Priscilla’s love for music started at a very young age and has always pushed her to seek for connection with her peers. It comes as no surprise that, aside her Public Relations studies, she joined BeatChronic, a team of talented students promoting underground music in Brussels. Soon, her logical mind and versatility allowed her to become a core force in the organisation.

4 years and a master’s degree later, she dived into a new challenge by cofounding Bloom Hill, a collective offering structural support to emerging artists through multiple means. Her experience in this position made her aware of the inner workings of music industry and skillful for project and event managing.

Always eager to develop new skills and knowledge, she started a DJ career in addition to her professional activity. Playing under the alias Bona Léa, she is continuously looking for unique sonorities and therefore delivers mind-blowing experiences that instantly prick the ears of her audiences. After DJing for 4 years, her highlighted moments have been performing at AFROPUNK, Dour Festival and mixing for The Lot Radio or Kiosk Radio. As creativity-and-exploration is her mantra, she joined the Five Oh team, bringing her 8 years experience and another resourceful mind to the table. Because no issue remains unsolved in her hands, you can always rely on her when feeling stuck in the mold.

Marianne

Marianne is a sucker for structure and has a thing for efficiency. Combine that with a hunger for challenge and an insatiable thirst for music, and you got yourself an excellent bilingual project manager.

During her years of professional experience in PR and production for the art & theatre world, Marianne Cattoir started a side career as a part of the female DJ duo Catwar & Lilihell. Passion turned into profession pretty quickly with bookings for Lokerse Feesten, All Eyes On Hip Hop, Les Ardentes, Couleur Café, Dour… and a series of own nightlife concepts.
