Music is our Business

Dear reader,

Get ready for a very special event right at the beginning of this year's Reeperbahn Festival: DOORS OPEN will open the 15th Reeperbahn Festival at Stage Operettenhaus with our programme to be experienced live on-site as well as online. Applying a great deal of creative care and, of course, meeting all current regulation, we managed to stage for you the great DOORS OPEN Show and the DOORS OPEN Concert by wonderful Tina Dico.

We are sure that DOORS OPEN will be a very special live experience even – or especially – this year: Finally, again a night full of live music, exciting guests, entertainment and festival mood! You should all join us as our live audience and via live streaming provided by our partners.
