From 18 – 21 September 2019, the Reeperbahn Festival will again present more than 900 events spanning a range of genres in locations around Hamburg’s Reeperbahn. In addition to some 600 concerts by international artists held in a wide variety of venues, the festival programme includes events in the fields of fine art, film, literature, and education. The festival’s partner country in 2019 is Australia.
Since its debut in 2006, the Reeperbahn Festival has grown to become one of the most important meeting places for the music industry worldwide, and, as Europe’s largest club festival, it boasts a broad spectrum of emerging and more established artists. The Austrian artists 5K HD, Cari Cari, Culk, Hunney Pimp, KeKe, Mathea, My Ugly Clementine, Pauls Jets and Thorsteinn Einarsson are confirmed to perform at the festival.
Austrian Heartbeats at RBF19

Seayou Records & Futuresfuture Showcase Night
Indie labels are the backbone of any thriving and diverse music culture. 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. The showcase will present dreamy pop duo ATZUR, the eloquent feminist rapper EBOW, label-owner GERARD and urban pop/neo r’n’b newcomer MIBLU.
AUSTRIAN ARTISTS AT RBF19
5K HD is the moniker of Austrian jazz band Kompost 3 and singer Mira Lu Kovacs who will release their 2nd avant-garde pop album “High Performer” on Sept 6th. Mira Lu Kovacs is also a part of indie rock newcomers MY UGLY CLEMENTINE – together with Sophie Lindinger (Leyya), Kathrin Kolleritsch (Kerosin95) and Barbara Jungreithmeier.
Post-punk formation CULK around lead singer Sophie Löw delivers a unique take on rock as well, complete with distorted sounds, edgy guitars and haunting vocals. The more euphoric, yet vaguely melancholic indie trio PAULS JETS quickly triggered a media hype among the German music press after the release of their eclectic and youthful debut “Alle Songs Bisher” (“All songs so far”). Representing the flourishing hip hop scene in Austria are KEKE (Mom I Made It/Universal Music) and HUNNEY PIMP (Phat Penguin Records) who both developed a new and idiosyncratic sound, blending dreamy vocals, gentle beats and a sombre atmosphere. A pinch of pop is brought to Hamburg by the young chart topper MATHEA and Austro-Icelandic singer-songwriter THORSTEINN EINARSSON. And last but not least, CARI CARI are making a comeback at Reeperbahn Festival after their successful show in 2018. In the meantime, the band has released their debut album “ANAANA” to international acclaim and went on to tour all over Europe.
