What is the Keychange Day?
The entire music industry would benefit from balanced gender relations. In order to give weight to this statement and to force targeted changes, the Reeperbahn Festival launched Keychange with international partners in 2017. Since then, more than 100 international music festivals & conferences have decided to fight for balanced line-ups and a 50:50 balance until 2022. The idea moves festival makers worldwide. Now it’s time to step forward and ask whether this should not also apply to the structures of the companies.
► What is needed to change the workforce in more balanced proportions?
► What needs to be done to shape the future music industries?
The Reeperbahn Festival 2018 is dedicated to questions of gender equality with various activities. Both the participants of the programme as well as representatives of the music industry and culture are striving for new insights. Panels, workshops, discussions and much more are all about bringing sustainable and long-term change.
