Reeperbahn Festival Socials

Dear media partners, dear colleagues,
Hard to believe, but there are less than three months to go until Reeperbahn Festival 2017. Over the course of the festival’s four days, Hamburg’s St. Pauli will be transformed – for the twelfth time – into the international epicentre of music. Reason enough, therefore, to announce another 45 new bands and artists, as the Reeperbahn Festival’s 2017 programme is steadily moving towards completion.

Reeperbahn Festival presents roughly 500 artists and bands, and so it’s no wonder that these days the music line-up for the 2017 edition is filling up fast. Today’s announcement features no less than 45 new confirmations. 
Timber Timbre (photo), centred around frontman Taylor Kirk, hail from Canada, our partner country this year. Their sixth studio album, “Sincerely, Future Pollution”, is evidence once again that the band hasn’t stopped refining its raw folk-blues sound. Lebanese singer-songwriter Yasmine Hamdan is considered to be one of the most groundbreaking musicians in the Middle East. She not only founded the first indie band in Lebanon but has also managed to pull off quite a feat in her career as a solo artist – the blending of international pop with Arab musical traditions to create a truly stunning new sound that both defies the limitations of genre and pushes cultural boundaries. Political awareness and the fun of a fantastic gig – Munich-based ten-member brass band Moop Mama proves that these two things are in no way mutually exclusive. And Welshly Arms, from Cleveland, Ohio, lend blues- and soul-imbued indie rock a fresh sound, injecting their own very contemporary take. The indie-pop songs of New Zealander Amelia Murray, aka FAZERDAZE, impress with their airy clarity, steady build-up of tension, gorgeously sawing guitars and melodic arcs that listeners will find hard to forget. The quartet Everything Everything (GB) play a hybrid of post-punk, indie-pop, synth-pop, and avant-garde-electro – it’s a music that demands your full attention but the close listen is not without its reward: a sound the likes of which has never, ever been heard before. “Undercover Blues”, the new album from Hamburg-based rapper-producer duo Slowy & 12Vince, is a spectacular demonstration of the multifaceted yet laid-back sound that can be found in today’s German hip-hop.
