Reeperbahn Festival is the biggest club festival in Europe and the most prominent European platform for the international music industry. Each year since 2006, countless clubs in and around the St. Pauli quarter of Hamburg have allowed Reeperbahn Festival to host performances by the hottest newcomers, often right before their big breakthrough. The conference programme at Reeperbahn Festival offers a packed line-up of sessions with panel discussions, keynotes, masterclasses, interviews, workshops, and networking events for all music industry visitors, from newbies in the trade to veteran professionals, covering the latest topics and challenges from all areas of the international music business.
Reeperbahn is one of the most important events for music industry professionals and music press. It is the ideal platform to expand their networks and increase the profile of their artists. Music Estonia’s role is to organize and support the delegation and to provide targeted opportunities for networking.
Project is supported by the Estonian Ministry of Culture.
Strategic partners are Tallinn Music Week and Radio 2.
