Since 2009, he has worked as a dedicated and passionate promoter at Live Nation France where he has proudly presented great acts such as Slipknot, Korn, Five Finger Death Punch, Avatar, He Is Legend and Seether to name a few. Since 2016, Damien has coordinated Download France Festival taking place in Paris.
“It is a great pleasure and an honour to be involved in the HMAs. This is a just return to all the people in our heavy music family that are often left aside from all ceremonies or awards in the world in spite of the amazing creativity of this scene. The Heavy Music Awards will put highlight the highly generous people, artists and technicians who are so deserving – and they can count on me!”
