VUT Indie Days and VIA! VUT Indie Awards To Enrich Conference Programme Again
VUT Indie Days and the VIA! VUT Indie Awards – hosted by the German Association of Independent Music Companies (VUT) – will be returning for the fourth time to Reeperbahn Festival to complement the conference programme. As always, VUT Indie Days will focus on the important issues affecting independent music companies in Germany.
VUT Indie Days will be held from 19 to 22 September and will enrich the Reeperbahn Festival programme with sessions, keynotes, workshops and VUT’s annual general meeting as well as the VUT Indie House. The opening of VUT Indie Days takes place on 19 September and includes a keynote. The VIA! VUT Indie Awards will be presented on 20 September at Schmidts Tivoli.
Désirée Vach, chairperson of VUT: “We’re excited to be returning to Reeperbahn Festival and to once again be providing our members with this excellent opportunity to network and upskill. Reeperbahn Festival, with its reach and influence, attracts music businesses from around the world to Hamburg, creating an international environment that’s also of benefit to our members. With our Indie Days programme, we’ll once again focus attention on issues of current relevance to our membership – these include both economic and social issues. We thank the Reeperbahn Festival team for its tremendous cooperation over the last few years and we very much look forward to continuing this relationship in the years to come.”
The main sponsor of the awards ceremony is the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. VUT Indie Days are supported by the German Society for the Administration of Neighbouring Rights (GVL). Click here for more information on VUT Indie Days and VIA! VUT Indie Awards.
