Reeperbahn Festival 2022 was so beautiful!
Wow! We have been looking forward to this 17th edition of the Reeperbahn Festival and have been working on the details to make it your highlight of the year after two pandemic editions. And now we say "thank you" - for four eventful days at the Reeperbahn Festival 2022.
With around 41,000 visitors, we were finally able to experience an international programme in full clubs with around 400 concerts by acts and artists from over 40 countries as well as 80 programmes from the fields of arts, film and word. The surprise concert by Kraftklub, for which more than 10,000 spectators gathered on the cordoned-off Reeperbahn at the end, showed just how enthusiastic you are about music. Crazy!
The conference programme also offered an extensive programme for around 4,300 trade visitors with 200 programme items consisting of sessions, networking events, showcases and award ceremonies.
The British trio Cassia wins the ANCHOR - Reeperbahn Festival International Music Award - congratulations!

Study on gender balance of music services
The 2nd Keychange Study, presented at a press conference on Thursday and once again supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Claudia Roth, clearly showed that the young and thus in the future decisive target group of young consumers attach enormous importance to a balanced gender ratio in offers such as festival line-ups, radio, streaming as well as recorded music offers and makes their purchasing decisions to a strongly increasing extent dependent on these factors. For more information, go this way. '
Keychange Inspiration Award
The Keychange Inspiration Award honours and celebrates women and gender minorities who have made extraordinary and pioneering contributions to music. The Award winners are our role models for the next generation and the Keychange network of talented artists and industry professionals. This year's winner is Alin Coen - congratulations!
