PROGRAM: REEPERBAHN FESTIVAL NASHVILLE 2021 (10-12 MAY)
Anyone who has ever been to Nashville surely discovered that the nickname "Music City" is no exaggeration. The density of important music companies and publishers is unparalleled, and the streets and bars are full of live music – at least during normal times. Next year, Reeperbahn Festival will hopefully be able to welcome delegates back to Nashville in person as usual, but this year's digital event also had plenty of exciting programming to offer from 10–12 May. The focus this year is on publishing.
Due to the current pandemic situation, Reeperbahn Festival International events in Nashville were offered primarily in digital/hybrid form on the Reeperbahn Festival conference platform. Together with our partner in the USA – the Music Business Association (Music Biz) – as well as with the Keychange movement and supported by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, we offered valuable contacts and exciting insights into the heart of the US music- and creative industry via 1:1 matchmakings, discussion panels & keynote presentations and digital company visits. Parallel to Reeperbahn Festival International in Nashville, Budde Music Publishing also hosted a digital "Singer-Songwriter Camp for female and underrepresented genders".
