After working one year for a Cologne based music promotion agency and another two years for an Artist Management, Marco Noni started an alternative, entry free music festival called „Heimspiel Open Air“ in 2004. With up to 8.000 music fans attending, presenting national as well as international acts like Biffy Clyro (UK), Maximo Park (UK), Mia. (D), Donots (D) and many more, the festival was a huge success. In 2006 he started his career as a booking agent at Meistersinger Konzerte in Berlin, representing international artists like Robyn (SE), Matt&Kim (USA), Yelle (FR) and Hellsongs (SE) as well as established German acts like Erdmöbel, Fehlfarben, Alexander Veljanov and Das Bo.
Marco relocated to Vancouver in October 2014 and redirected his business by focusing primarily on booking Canadian artists in Germany. Shortly after he also took over the management for Edmonton-based band Scenic Route to Alaska, and began consulting Canadian artists and labels on self distributed releases in Germany. Currently, popTrip is beginning to expand, adding Canada to its booking territories and growing the team by welcoming Florian Meier on board. Florian has formerly worked at Empirical Artist Services (Management for The Weakerthans) and Paquin Artist Agency in Canada as well as for Berlin-based agency Destiny Tourbooking (Lagwagon, Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School of Medicine, Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, CJ Ramone, A Wilhelm Scream…).
