Reeperbahn Festival today unveiled the music line-up for its first New York event, taking place on 15 June as part of the American Association of Independent Music (A2IM)’s Indie Week.
Israeli electropop rapper, singer and producer Adi Ulmansky, Swedish hip-hop artist Rebstar, German psych-pop band Fenster, German dance music producer Moonboy Inc., German pop-noir band Malky, Canadian rap act Grand Analog and German blues guitarist and singer Jesper Munk, all of whom are hoping to break into the US market, will perform at Santos Party House in New York city centre.
The Reeperbahn showcase, supported by the German Foreign Office and The Village Voice, and partnership with AI2M “aims to establish new business contacts in the North American market and strengthen existing cooperative relationships so that, working together, a future-oriented transatlantic network can be built”, says a statement from Reeperbahn.
The main Reeperbahn conference and showcase in Hamburg announced its first wave of performers last month.
