Music is our Business

Dear reader,

it is time to celebrate music and its industry. At Reeperbahn Festival we traditionally do this by honoring especially noteworthy newcomers and outstanding performances in different areas. This year, this happens to a forced degree differently than usual. Nevertheless, or maybe just because of that, I ask you to take a lively part in our four awards, join us online and celebrate the music and those who work with it!

If you already have a ticket for our digital conference, please register quickly on the platform.
