Dear media representatives, dear colleagues,
We are pleased to announce an innovation today! The Festival Village on Heiligengeistfeld in close proximity to the underground station St. Pauli will be a completely new festival space, a green village amidst all the hubbub, so to speak. Programme items from all areas of the Reeperbahn Festival will be presented on about 15,000 square metres of concerts, conferences and art.

Hamburg, 6 September 2017
In the middle of the four-day Reeperbahn Festival bustle a very special location will be created between Millerntorplatz and the Stadium: The new Festival Village will resemble an idyllic village with green spaces, a small fountain as well as seating and relaxation facilities, inviting visitors to linger and discover
; it will be open to all guests, media representatives and artists. The Festival Village reflects all the programme items of the Reeperbahn Festival: live music, panel sessions, film, art, infotainment and much more. The ticket and the press desk, previously located on Spielbudenplatz, move to the Festival Village.   

As already announced, the most spectacular component of the Festival Village is certainly the 360° Dome which will have seats for 280 guests. During the day, this is where the professional visitor programme will take place, partly in cooperation with the digital conference NEXT, before the pianist and electronic artist Martin Kohlstedt performs his audio-visual programme “Currents“, specifically created for this cupola, together with the multimedia collectives Bloodbrothers and Elektropastete  every day. Afterwards, in collaboration with the Fulldome Festival Foundation Jena, the best international short films from the genres fiction, art and music will be shown under the banner “The Art of 360°“ every evening. Later at night “ego | blurred“, the world premiere of a new video by the Icelandic minimal techno duo KIASMOS, will be showcased daily. 

Live music will take place on the Fritz Kola open-air stage in the Festival Village. The indispensable and popular BAZZOOKAS Bus has also moved to the Festival Village. Shared Studio is a multimedia meeting, conference and concert venue housed in a container; it has live connections to different places all over the world and offers an international five-hour programme. Container Love also provides multimedial images, talks, music, performances and art all on the theme of love. Shared Studios and Container Love are outstanding visual elements of the project platform POP’N’POLITICS, subsidised by the Federal Agency for Civic Education.

Apart from the installation “Collusion“, various busses and trucks will stop at the Festival Village: The Gibson Bus offers media representatives a quiet place for interviews and talks. A Levi’s truck will open a small sound studio where guests can record their own songs or sing karaoke songs.
For four days, the Social Bus will be the place to go for all those who are not only interested in good music but also in issues such as human rights, political participation and social commitment.
Moreover, “Rock Pharmacy“ will open its gates, a Foo Fighters Bus presenting the new album release and offering fan goodies as well as raffles with high-quality prizes, such as a journey for two to the “Cal Jam 17“ Festival of the Foo Fighters.
