Call for Applications: Reeperbahn Festival International Nashville 2021 (10-12 May)
Reeperbahn Festival International 2021 is entering the second round! Following our call for applications for Beijing, we are happy to cordially invite European music-industry professionals to participate in our event in the “Music City” of Nashville from 10–12 May. In addition, female and non-binary parties interested in participating in the "Singer-Songwriter Camp for female and underrepresented genders" are encouraged to apply by contacting email@example.com. Small and medium-sized companies are particularly encouraged to participate, but other industry players are not excluded. The prerequisite for applying is a concrete interest in the US music industry as well as involvement in an activity in the areas of publishing, labels, distribution, management or similar. Click here to find the application form and more information.
Due to the pandemic, events will be offered primarily in digital/hybrid form on the Reeperbahn Festival conference platform. Together with our partner in the US the Music Business Association (Music Biz) and supported by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, we will offer valuable contacts and exciting insights into the heart of the US music- and creative industries.
The focus for Nashville will be on music publishing and of course on the Music City itself. Over the course of three days, delegates can expect exciting, networking events, curated 1:1 matchmaking sessions with top decision-makers in the US music- and creative industries, panels, keynote presentations, digital visits to major US music companies, as well as a digital "Singer-Songwriter Camp for female and underrepresented genders". Details to follow.
In addition to the events in Beijing (21–23 April) and Nashville, spin-offs are also scheduled for the first half of the year in Africa (31 May – 3 June) and New York (14–17 June). While keeping a very watchful eye on the development of the pandemic, an in-person element for these four events is tentatively scheduled in Hamburg for the selected European delegation. Additional spin-offs in Los Angeles (USA) and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) are also being planned for the fall.
