After the very successful digital editions of the Reeperbahn Festival New York in 2020 and 2021, we are very happy to be able to plan on two tracks this year: Should pandemic conditions allow, we will embark on the real journey to the "Big Apple" together with our delegation. Alternatively, we are planning Reeperbahn Festival New York as a digital/hybrid version in parallel. In any case, Reeperbahn Festival New York will take place from June 13-16, alongside with the world's largest indie music conference, A2IM Indie Week. 

Its extensive program is reserved for members of A2IM - actually. Because through the cooperation with Reeperbahn Festival International, selected non-members from the European music industry will also have access to the complete program of Indie Week, and at a discounted conference ticket price. In addition, we will pay a travel allowance of 500€ for our delegation. 

The core of A2IM Indie Week are exciting panels and keynotes as well as 1:1 matchmaking meetings with top decision makers of the American music and creative industries, where you can actively network as a delegate of the Reeperbahn Festival. But that's not all: a Showcase Evening with Networking Reception are among the exclusive activities for Reeperbahn Festival New York delegates, as well as visits to the offices of important New York companies. 

European music industry professionals are now invited to apply for participation as a delegate at Reeperbahn Festival New York from April 20 up to and including May 8 here. There you will also find all further information and requirements for participation in Reeperbahn Festival New York as part of A2IM Indie Week. 

Part of Reeperbahn Festival New York is also a digital singer-songwriter camp for female, trans and non-binary writers, artists and producers, which will take place a bit earlier: from May 30 to June 1. This camp is organized and supervised by ROBA Music Publishing, more info and registration form via
