8/4/2015 Reeperbahn Festival 2015

The streets of Hamburg, Germany will be bursting with the sight of art and the

sound of music at Reeperbahn Festival 10th edition - September 23rd to 26th,


Reeperbahn Festival is a vibrant showcase of visual art, live performances, awards, and

educational sessions on the business of music. The main draw of Reeperbahn Festival is its

music component, with highlights including an independent label market during the full

three-day networking conference. There will be representatives from all angles of the music

industry in attendance, including SynchAudio, a music licensing and synchronization

company. SynchAudio will proudly be presenting Mary Ramos, an award-winning music

supervisor who has worked on films by Quentin Tarantino. In an interview she will share

inside stories from Hollywood and offer insights into her work.

Reeperbahn will host a long-list of talented performers, with noteable names such as:

Norwegian electro-pop artist AURORA, British grunge act Demob Hippy, Australian

singer-songwriter Hein Cooper, and from the USA, Mikky Ekko, writer/producer of

Rihanna’s "Stay." This year “band posters” are a major theme of Reeperbahn’s

extensive art exhibitions. The display will include authentic Pearl Jam posters from

the ‘90s onwards at showings titled "The Poster Printed Will Remind Me" and "The Flat

Stock Europe Poster Convention", with limited edition screen prints from various artists.

Also don’t miss "Reeper Reeper 3," where six engaging students will be exhibiting their

work under the theme “monotonous.” Finally, instrument-maker Tintin Patrone and

members of the International MusicMotorcycleClub will be presenting a herd of decked-out,

and souped-up sound machines in vehicles they’ve outfitted to carry noise, not cargo.

Apart from these interesting displays, the topic of “Sync” is going to be a major highlight

of the festival.
