About Conference

Reeperbahn Festival is Germany's largest music platform for the music and digital industry. The Reeperbahn Festival Conference offers industry professionals a programme that includes more than sessions, networking events, meetings, showcases, and awards shows. In 2020, the conference took place exclusively in digital form for the first time. Talks and panels were produced in 3 live studios in the Klubhaus St. Pauli from Reeperbahn. On the rooftop channel - live from the terrace of the Gaga Club - the two presenters Jan Schipmann and Sara Kelly-Husain guided the digital visitors through the day with many interviews, which they conducted with artists, industry professionals and other interesting guests.


Talks, panels, keynotes, presentations, and workshops are all a part of the Reeperbahn Festival Conference programme. Top international speakers will address issues relevant to the music industry, its submarkets – recorded music, live entertainment, and publishing – and related sectors in the digital economy. The sessions programme is curated by an independent committee of industry experts.


Each year labels, partners, and music export offices showcase their new and aspiring artists at Reeperbahn Festival, providing a great complement to the festival’s curated concert programme. About 50 German and international showcases present exciting bands and solo artists to a large audience of fans, media representatives, and trade professionals.
