Reeperbahn Festival Socials

Dear media partners, dear colleagues,
after an absolutely amazing anniversary year, motivation is high as we shift our focus to the eleventh edition of the Reeperbahn Festival. We’re thrilled to be able to start things off with a bit of a bang because today’s topic of discussion is the Reeperbahn Festival’s activities in the world’s biggest music market!

The Reeperbahn Festival announces its partnership with leading US music organisation A2IM and launches in 2016 the first Reeperbahn Festival New York Edition during the A2IM Indie Week (13 – 16 June in New York City). Support is provided by the German Foreign Office.

The US market remains of paramount importance to anyone working in the music sector on the international level – nevertheless, accessing this market is anything but easy. With an eye to facilitating entry for music-industry professionals, the Reeperbahn Festival is taking a proactive role in 2016 with the introduction of the Reeperbahn Festival New York Edition and is pleased to announce its official partnership with A2IM Indie Week. Initial planning gets under way this week at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. 

The A2IM conference, access to which is restricted to A2IM members, will be held in New York from 13 to 16 June. Every year representatives from over 350 independently owned American record labels – labels of all sizes and spanning all musical genres (Merge Records, Daptone Records, Beggars Group, Domino Records, to name just a few) – gather at this conference to develop common strategies and visions through Executive One-on-One Meetings, panels, presentations, roundtable discussions, and more. 

2016 marks the first time that a delegation of music-industry professionals will travel to New York under the aegis of the Reeperbahn Festival, and with the kind support of the German Foreign Office, to take advantage of this highly fertile environment and to establish and strengthen contacts in the North American music market. The Reeperbahn Festival’s participation at A2IM will also a Reeperbahn Festival showcase event on 15 June at Santos Party House.

Trade and professional visitors attending the most important music, media, and technology event in the world – SXSW, in Austin, Texas – can come meet up with us to discuss the Reeperbahn Festival New York Edition. We’ll be at the Reeperbahn Burgers bar, out in front of the Austin Convention Center, from 12 to 17 March 2016. We’re also returning to SXSW with our usual programme of music, panels, parties, and networking sessions. An overview of all Reeperbahn Festival activities during SXSW can be found here.
