Maja Sofic was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina but grew up in Australia. She has lived in 8 countries including Serbia, England, Italy, Switzerland, Norway and Sweden. Maja got a degree in politics from her education in Australia but her passion is clearly more around music. She loves working with people, with music and loves to be involved in music related projects. This passion has led her to running the heave-metal/rock-pub and restaurant The Abyss in Gothenburg, which has become the place for people within the genre to meet.
The Abyss also run shows, in quite impressive numbers, and is now also running a festival called The Abyss Festival, taking place at Gothenburg Film Studios. 2019 will be the second year of the festival and the growth from the first year will be massive.
