From Hamburg to Beijing: The organizers of Reeperbahn Festival International will kick off the three-day programfrom the Nochtspeicher in Hamburg. The delegates can expect a greeting from Alexander Schulz (Managing Director of Reeperbahn Festival) and Evelyn Sieber (Project Management at Reeperbahn Festival International) as well as a meet-and-greet with WISE founder Philipp Grefer, a discussion of the program, and a subsequent Q&A with the delegates. Annette Yang will lead through the Kick-Off program.
During selected digital company visits, Chinese decision-makers will provide valuable insights into their work as well as into the Chinese music- and creative industries in general. Specifically, Alessandro Pavanello, International Business Manager at Kanjian and Edward Liu, Managing Director at Live Nation in Beijing will open their doors to the delegates of Reeperbahn Festival International.
As part of the Peking Showcase, live from Nochtspeicher in Hamburg, we experience unique modern synth-pop from Berlin artist Lie Ning and Ava Vegas presents her deep, noble chanson voice. Chinese rapper Bohan Phoenix rounds out the program via video integration, bridging the intercontinental gap. Due to the current pandemic, the showcase will be broadcasted as a hybrid event from Beijing and Hamburg. The showcase concerts will provide a stage on which selected new and emerging bands and solo artists can present themselves to key industry- and media representatives as well as to public audiences. At the same time, affiliated managers will be involved as part of the delegation for networking with local music- and creative-industry representatives.
