The Reeperbahn Festival is Europe’s B2B platform for the music and digital industry. The Reeperbahn Festival Conference offers industry professionals a programme that includes more than 300 sessions, networking events, meetings, showcases, and award shows. We expect around 4,700 professionals and media representatives from 56 countries attending.
Talks, panels, keynotes, presentations, and workshops are all a part of the Reeperbahn Festival Conference sessions programme. At this year’s conference, top international speakers will address issues relevant to the music industry, its submarkets – recorded music, live entertainment, and publishing – and related sectors in the digital economy. The sessions programme is curated by an independent committee of industry experts.
Each year labels, partners, and music export offices showcase their new and aspiring artists at the Reeperbahn Festival, providing a great complement to the festival’s curated concert programme. We’re expecting about 40 German and international showcases that will present exciting bands and solo artists to a large audience of fans, media representatives, and trade professionals.
