Music Makers Playground

Arts /

A place where instrument manufacturers, music brands, musicians and Reeperbahn Festival visitors can meet and network: Between Backstage and Festival Village, the Music Makers Playground is the place to be for experts from the instrument industry to meet with (new) customers, present their new business ideas and make new business contacts. Discover a wide range of instruments, whether for professionals or bloody beginners - from top-class keys from our partners Casio, Boston Pianos and Kawai, to vintage guitars – and you don't even need a festival ticket.

Admire a wide variety of guitars from the classic Fender Stratocaster to the Les Paul at "The World of Vintage Guitars" from Thursday to Saturday. Besides guitar legends Thomas Blug (No Angels, Chaka Khan, etc.) and Peter Weihe (Falco, Udo Lindenberg, etc.), you can expect a few surprise guests.

The acoustic guitars by Maybach & Guild and the guitars by Gretsch/Charvel will make guitarists' hearts skip a beat. You can also buy guitar cables from Klotz Ais & Bodentreter or CMS, have your guitars inspected in the "guitar workshop" or try out pedals (from Nobels, CMS, etc.) and amps (Gold Super Amps, Bluguitar Amp, etc.) live and loud in our sound booth.

Höfner will also be exhibiting bass guitars that you might be familiar with from bass players such as Paul McCartney.

The programme "Digital Music Distribution & Independent Music Landscape 2021" with Colin Schrinner, Head of Tunecore, Germany on Saturday invites to an open discussion and Q&A about being "independent" and gives insight into the different distribution services for artists and interested festival visitors.
