Join our Men­to­ring Ses­si­ons

Since 2006, Hamburg's Reeperbahn has become the centre of the international music world for four days in September and thus the interface between artists, audience and industry representatives. The Reeperbahn Festival Conference in particular offers industry professionals an extensive programme of sessions with panels, talks, interviews and workshops, as well as numerous networking opportunities. In order to make even better use of this potential and to offer delegates the opportunity to go even deeper into certain topics in addition to the session programme, we have launched our new MENTORING SESSIONS format this year.

In the MENTORING SESSIONS, an expert on a certain topic meets up to five delegates. In 60 minutes, the participants can ask all their questions, get to know the expert and other delegates and exchange experiences and knowledge.

Thematically, all relevant sub-sectors of the music industry will be covered in the MENTORING SESSIONS. Topics from the areas of recorded music, publishing, sync, live entertainment & marketing will be dealt with, with a special focus on forward-looking and socially relevant topics such as transformation in the music industry, ecological & social sustainability, awareness structures, mental health and diversity, equality & inclusion.

To participate in a MENTORING SESSION, all delegates can apply on this website between 28.08.2023 and 13.09.2023 and already ask three questions to the experts. The applications will be carefully reviewed and the conversation rounds will be pre-curated. Confirmation of participation in the MENTORING SESSIONS will be sent by 18.09.2023. When applying, please note that only delegates in possession of a Reeperbahn Festival conference ticket can apply and please only attend a MENTORING SESSION for which you have received a confirmation mail. Please also understand that due to the large number of applications we receive, we will not be able to send out any refusals. If you have not received an confirmation by 18.09.2023, unfortunately your participation in the MENTORING SESSIONS will not work out.
