The Reeperbahn Festival comes again to the U.S. in order to strengthen the music business connection between Germany, Europe and North America. Reeperbahn Festival is searching for the future of cultural exchange and new opportunities for international talent to enter the U.S. market and for U.S. acts to improve their careers and strategies for the European market and specifically Germany — the third biggest music market worldwide. This session will offer an introduction into the German music industry, focussing on the publishing, recording and live entertainment sector and providing exclusive insights presented by selected German experts from each market. We’ll delve into the differences and chances between the European and U.S. territory.
