The festival present more than 900 events spanning a range of genres in locations around Hamburg’s Reeperbahn and boasts a broad spectrum of emerging artists.
To kick things off, AME will present an “Austrian Heartbeats” showcase on the opening night of the festival (Wednesday, Sept 19). For the first time, Futuresfuture & Seayou Records host a joint label night on Friday, September 21. And already among the first artist announcements, Austrian electro-pop duo YUKNO will perform in Hamburg. For a quick overview, head over to our Spotify playlist for RBF18!
AUSTRIAN HEARTBEATS AT RBF18
On Wednesday, September 19, at the legendary club Indra, Austrian Music Export in cooperation with Advantage Austria and Waves Vienna invites international delegates to mix and mingle with members of the Austrian music business. A networking reception (19-20) and four live shows (20-24) provide the perfect opportunity to get to know the current Austrian music scene.

Futuresfuture & Seayou Records Night
On Thursday, September 20, two of Vienna´s busiest labels – Futuresfuture and Seayou Records – present a cross section of their roster at Reeperbahn Festival. Futuresfuture was founded in 2017 by rapper Gerard and Ilias Dahimene who in turn founded Seayou Records in 2006. Both labels have a broad and open A&R approach that puts the quality of the artistic work before genres or trends. Providing a high level of professionalism, they aim to supply artists with a platform they can use to unfold their creativity.
Live: Jugo Ürdens & EINFACHSO, Naked Cameo, Flut, The Crispies, Mister Me (GER)
AND THERE IS MORE
What has been hinted at by various singles and the much-praised 2016 EP “König ohne Land”, is being impressively confirmed by the release of YUKNO´s debut album “Ich kenne kein Weekend” in spring 2018. The Styrian duo is a band that approaches electro pop from a slightly different and somewhat darker angle and definitely seems to be destined for greater things.
Lomboy (BE) is the new project of Tanja Frinta (of Lonely Drifter Karen fame), born in Austria and currently based in Brussels, Belgium. Laura Landergott´s “sunken psych soul” project RÁN (DE) sees the multi instrumentalist and Ja, Panik member team up with guitar player Yair Karelic. And the Graz-based Petrol Girls (UK) will bring their post-hardcore sounds to Hamburg with the help of drummer Zock, the singer of Austrian punk band Astpai.
