It’s year three for the Reeperbahn Festival New York Edition! The 2018 edition will take place in mid-June in the “city of all cities” and includes:
- a delegation that will attend A2IM Indie Week presented by SoundExchange (18–21 June) and SyncSummit New York (22 & 23 June)
- a Reeperbahn Festival Showcase in conjunction with A2IM Indie Week (probably on 20 June)
- the announcement of the jury for the ANCHOR 2018 – Reeperbahn Festival International Music Award
International music-industry professionals are invited to join the Reeperbahn Festival NYC Edition delegation. In 2017, the delegation was made up of 24 people representing 18 businesses, including labels, management companies, distributors, conventions, and export offices. The objective was to give delegates an opportunity to make targeted contacts in the US market, and, through participation in the many panels, workshops, and 1:1 meetings, to gain concrete insights into the particular conditions of the world’s largest music market and set in motion new business deals and partnerships.
The Reeperbahn Festival Showcase in conjunction with A2IM Indie Week presents German and international artists seeking access to the North American market. Last year, the showcase took place at PIANOS on New York’s Lower East Side and featured performances by Lydmor (DK), Leyya (AT), Megan Bonnell (CA), Carnival Youth (LT), We Bless This Mess (PT), Olivier St. Louis (US), and 2016 ANCHOR winner Albin Lee Meldau (SE).
Also part of the New York Edition: the announcement of the jury for the ANCHOR 2018, which will be awarded in September at Reeperbahn Festival.
