Reeperbahn Festival 2012

Germany’s biggest Club-Festival
There is no other music industry platform in Europe with such a multifaceted density, in a unique atmosphere only Germany’s most famous red light and entertainment district can offer. The Reeperbahn Festival, with it’s three components Music, Campus and Arts, presents more than 200 concerts of international newcomers.

The genres represented range from Rock, Pop and Indie to Singer-Songwriter, Folk and Electro.

Reeperbahn Festival CAMPUS
The Reeperbahn Festival Campus is a music and live entertainment industry conference with an extensive B2B programme by national and international partners which attracted 2.000 delegates from 30 countries in 2011. The slogan “Gateway to the German Music Market” emphasizes the focus of the Reeperbahn Festival Campus in 2012. The B2B music industry platform of the Reeperbahn Festival shows it’s international orientation and role as the pave maker for companies, organisations and artists to enter the German music market. The Campus is going to offer various B2B networking events but also more and more components are aiming for both the music industry as well as consumers. The B2B platform is traditionally supplemented by the conferences of the Campus with focus on the latest topics of the live and recorded music industry.

The Austrian presence at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg is powered by AKM/GFÖM, IFPI/LSG, WKO/Fachverband der Film- und Musikindustrie and AWO go international. The festival presents four Austrian artists from the current pop/rock and indie scene to the German and international music and live entertainment industry.

Austria Sounds Great Reeperbahn Festival 2012

Austria Sounds Great! @ Reeperbahn Festival 2012 – Thursday, 20.09.2012
15.00-17.00 B2B Networking & Showcase Event w/ My Name Is Music and Sweet Sweet Moon
Molotow Bar, Spielbudenplatz 5, 20359 Hamburg (St. Pauli)
Listen and enjoy – that´s the motto for B2B guests at the festival on Thursday afternoon at the club Molotow. Alongside musical treats from My Name is Music and Sweet Sweet Moon original Viennese-style Kaiserschmarrn with Zwetschgenröster will be served to international delegates at the Reception of the Austrian Music Export Office.

19.30 Sweet Sweet Moon
Stage West –
Sweet Sweet Moon, that’s first and foremost young Austrian multi-instrumentalist Matthias Frey. Alone on stage he is creating an almost orchestral sound with violin, synths and his best sidekick the loop pedal, revealing artistic ties to the likes of Owen Pallett.

20.00 Gerard
Docks –
Some of you might already know Gerard from Vienna, for example – then as Gerard MC – from his underground masterpiece “Blur” (2009). He works with a wide range of musical influences including The Streets, Hudson Mohawke and Jamie Woon and combines them with clever, profound lyrics that reflect the mental status quo of his generation in striking images.

24.00 Garish
Imperial Theater –
In Austria Garish has already been able to make quite a name for itself. With exceptional linguistic and musical pieces, the band has constructed its own universe, exhausted the definition of pop to its limits and has sustainably established itself amongst the most remarkable acts of the local music scene.
