Music is our Business

Dear reader,

Reeperbahn Festival International 2021 is entering the second round! Following our call for applications for Beijing, we are happy to cordially invite European music-industry professionals to participate in our event in the “Music City” of Nashville from 10 – 12 May, with a focus specifically on music publishing.

Due to the pandemic, events will be offered primarily in digital/hybrid form on the Reeperbahn Festival Conference Platform. Together with our partner in the US, the Music Business Association (Music Biz), and supported by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, we will offer valuable contacts and exciting insights into the heart of the US music- and creative industries.

Find more information on the call and the application form below and get a first glimpse of the next Focus Session "Festival Saison 2021" on 13 April.
