Third Reeperbahn Festival New York Edition in June 2018

Just two weeks to go until the Reeperbahn Festival team and 18 representatives from 16 European music businesses (a mix of labels, distributors, and management companies) head over to New York City for the third Reeperbahn Festival New York Edition, to be held in conjunction with A2IM Indie Week presented by SoundExchange, the largest meeting of the independent music community in North America, and for the first time, SyncSummit, a conference devoted to music and brands, film and advertising.

From 18 to 23 June, Reeperbahn Festival will put on a sort of miniature version of itself – complete with a showcase night featuring international acts and the announcement of the ANCHOR 2018 Jury – presenting the festival to the North American music market as the ideal European platform for new music and the music business.

On Wednesday, 20 June, Reeperbahn Festival introduces the jury for ANCHOR 2018 chaired by legendary producer Tony Visconti. The ANCHOR is Reeperbahn Festival’s accolade to help up-and-coming bands and artists launch their international careers.

Songwriter and ANCHOR 2017 winner Jade Bird (GB) will be performing at the Reeperbahn Festival showcase, presented by Consequence Of Sound, on the night of 20 June.
HAERTS (DE/US) will represent the Wunderkinder - German Music Talent programme, initiated by Reeperbahn Festival to promote talented German musicians and music acts. With a sound steeped in political urgency and feminist poetry, rapper – and the third New York showcase act – Akua Naru (DE) stands for the future of female hip hop, making her the perfect ambassador of Keychange, a project partnered by Reeperbahn Festival that is devoted to strengthening the role of women in the music industry. Little Junior (US), Surma (PT) and Jeannel (DE) will complete the Reeperbahn Festival showcase line-up.

In the meantime the delegation of German and European music industry professionals will be able to gain deeper insights into the American music market and effectively broaden their US networks.
