Music is our business

Dear reader,

South Africa is calling! Shortly before the onset of winter in Germany, Reeperbahn Festival International will be heading to warmer locales. Reeperbahn Festival Johannesburg will take place from 25–27 November 2021 as part of ACCES, the leading African music industry event, organized by the Music In Africa Foundation (MIAF) and with support from the Federal Foreign Office. 

We managed to bulid a digital window into the ACCES conference happening live in Johannesburg, so you can meet African decision-makers from renowned management agencies, labels, publishers, bookers and more who will be able to connect with their European counterparts via digital 1:1 meetings. See below for more information!
