Due to the current pandemic situation, we will announce more details on our concrete plannings via our channels from summer 2022 onwards.
From 21 - 24 September 2022, Reeperbahn Festival combines a diverse line-up of new, international talents with a programme comprising of a wide range of themes in a progressive music marketplace. A wide variety of events awaits fans, journalists and trade visitors at numerous venues, promising both excitement and inspiration. Since its debut in 2006, Reeperbahn Festival has become one of the most important meeting places for the world of music and demonstrates how an exuberant music programme can be combined with music industry interests and social initiatives.
In addition to the huge amount of concerts by international artists, the programme also includes formats of visual art and virtual reality as well as a thematically diverse range of films and literature. The Discourse section also provides a platform for social and cultural debates, as well as information about entering the music industry. The Festival Village on Heiligengeistfeld forms the central hub for such themes and many more. Within the framework of sessions, showcases, networking events and award shows, industry visitors to Reeperbahn Festival can listen to, rethink and experience music.
The dialogue between artists, audience and music industry becomes particularly visible at the Reeperbahn Festival Opening, which brings current music-relevant and socio-political topics on stage with high-profile live acts and well-known guests from music, entertainment and politics, or as the lead partner of the Keychange initiative, which campaigns for gender equality in music. The ANCHOR - Reeperbahn Festival International Music Award with its six-member jury serves as a distinction for young bands and artists on their way to an international career and as an orientation guide for fans and musicians in their search for the best new music.
The festival's partner country in 2022 is the USA.
