Reeperbahn Festival & Sequencer Tour @ SXSW / Austin

For the 11th time tomorrow, the Reeperbahn Festival delegation, taking along their own comprehensive programme offering, will travel to the creative metropolis Austin which will become the world hub for music, film and interactive for ten days for SXSW.

Empowering Women In Music… 
…is the credo of several programme items of Reeperbahn Festival at SXSW. Reeperbahn Festival is a co-initiator of European initiative "Keychange", which is aimed at ensuring a balanced gender ratio in the music world. Two years after its start, it is time now to have a look at comparable non-European initiatives. The US equivalent of "Keychange" is the newly founded Task Force of the Grammy Academy Initiative on Recorded Music.
During a panel session the models of the two initiatives, whose goals are similar, will be compared. The discussion panel members are Vanessa Reed, Managing Director of PRS Foundation, Andreya Casablanca and Laura Lee, singers of the band Gurr as well as a member of the Task Force on Gender Balance of the Grammy Academy Initiative on Recorded Music.The debate will be facilitated by Chris Douridas, co-founder of the radio channel KCRW, Los Angeles, and begin at German Haus at 02:00 pm on 12 March.

On the previous day, Reeperbahn Festival and "Keychange" will already stage a concert night, presenting a selection of international female artists at the venue EU@SXSW, including the new "Keychange" ambassadress, rapper Mavi Phoenix (AT), the band Gurr (DE) as well as Lowly (DK) and SOAK (UK).
