New York, New York – Review of RBF NYC Edition
In the last few weeks, after eventful days in the “City of Cities”, the second Reeperbahn Festival New York Edition in the course of the A2IM Indie Week came to an end.
On 7 June, Tony Visconti first announced the ANCHOR jury at an international press conference, before in the legendary „Pianos” in the Lower East Side the official A2IM Showcase of the Reeperbahn Festival New York Edition with Albin Lee Meldau (Sweden, ANCHOR winner 2016), Carnival Youth (Latvia), Leyya (Austria), Olivier St. Louis (USA), Megan Bonnell (Canada), We Bless This Mess (Portugal) und Lydmor (Denmark) came on the stage.
The 24 fellow travelling delegates from Europe took part on every day of the A2IM Indie Week and they praised not only the Libera Awards in the Playstation Theatre in Times Square and the visit of the Northside Festival in Brooklyn but above all the very efficient, tailor-made, individual meetings with the A2IM member companies.
And A2IM also expressed their satisfaction: “The cooperation with Reeperbahn Festival brought in new music business contacts from Europe to our members and allowed us to showcase emerging artists live. We are looking forward to expanding our relationship in 2018”, is how Richard Burgess (President Association of Independent Music) put it.
