Hamburg, you better get ready: not long to go until this year’s edition of Reeperbahn Festival – the Hanseatic way of clubbing. Taking place in several venues around Hamburg’s infamous Reeperbahn, you’ll see over 200 up-and-coming bands and djs from all over the world – it’s like a German approach to the SXSW festival programme.
The special thing about Reeperbahn Festival (September 22-24) is that you might run into music where you wouldn’t expect it necessarily: a dj set on a cutter? Check! A band playing atop of an old WWII bunker? Check! Rap performances in an old school bus? Check!
The most special thing about the festival is the musical selection though: Promising new artists are showcasing during the 3-day-long event in the heart of Hamburg, which makes Reeperbahn Festival great to discover new music by just stumbling into a venue without knowing what to expect – just having a great time with good friends and surprisingly good music.
On the other hand there are the highlight artists, of course. Just to name a few: Apparat Band, Bratze, Yelle, Chuckamuck, When Saints Go Machine, Friendly Fires, Jamie Woon, Cloud Control and S.C.U.M.
Besides the musical programme you can also dig into the buisiness aspect of music: with Reeperbahn Campus there’s lots to discover from a professional point of view such as copyright, publishing and mobile distribution. And with Reeperbahn Arts your lack of free time will be guaranteed with the poster convention ‘Flatstock’, film screenings, street art performances and exhibitions.
