dear media partners, dear colleagues,

One of the most enjoyable and most eagerly expected press releases is always the first great wave of artists confirmed for the next Reeperbahn Festival. After announcing the five acts for the Elbphilharmonie, today 34 artists of various genres, planned for this year in Hamburg, have been confirmed!

The diverse live programme of every Reeperbahn Festival reflects the listening habits of digital natives: hip-hop, rock, hardcore, jazz, Afro dancehall sound, indie, electro, singer-songwriter and a lot more – Reeperbahn Festival will be multi-dimensional as well as international also in 2020!  

The female hip-hop collective Daughters of Reykjavík (IS) (photo) and their last two albums have caused a sensation with sound and attitude: The nine musicians break traditional standards and conventions, proving that feminine sovereignty does not have to remain an utopia in the music business – please follow their example!

Goth dandy Drangsal (DE) and his post-punk pop provides exciting new impulses for the European music landscape; at Reeperbahn Festival, he will present the follow-up of his success album "Zores".

KOKOROKO (GB) are a prime example for why British jazz has been on everyone's lips for some time: The ensemble of eight musicians with its cosmopolitan, creative and open approach in terms of style, ranging between jazz, afrobeat, fusion and funk, is considered the most recent and most successful figurehead of the London jazz scene.

With their epic feat "The Shape of Punk to Come", Refused (SE), featuring frontman Dennis Lyxzen, have changed the sound of hardcore for good: Politically charged with capitalist criticism, monster riffs and the craziest suspense. On their current album "War Music" the band shows that in these times they are more desperately needed than ever before!

With Pongo (PT) Engrácia Domingues, originating from Angola and based in Portugal, has created a sound that combines African rhythms with r’n’b, house and dancehall. After her intercontinental success with her EPs "Baia" and "UWA", she will now make her Reeperbahn Festival audience sweat with euphoria!

GHOSTPOET (GB) proves that modern hip-hop can be more than gangsta-macho posturing: He is considered the most unconventional UK rapper, blending spoken word, crooner passages and singing into a dark complex sound, whose astute observations address political problems and do not shy away from public discourse. 

Also confirmed: Heisskalt (DE), Niels Frevert (DE), MAULI (DE), Weval (NL), Scott Matthew (AU), Be Svendsen (DK), ÄTNA (DE), Molchat Doma (BY), BLVTH (DE), Ilgen-Nur (DE), Buntspecht (AT), ILIRA (DE), HAEVN (NL), mxmtoon (US), Far Caspian (GB), Working Men's Club (GB), Gracie Abrams (US), Talk Show (GB), The Howl & The Hum (GB), Betterov (DE), Kraków Loves Adana (DE), Núria Graham (ES), Boundaries (DK), Calby (DK), Molina (DK), Drew (DK), Cash Savage and The Last Drinks (AU), Nabihah Iqbal (GB)
