2019 Reeperbahn Festival was again present at the Indie Week of the American Association Of Independent Music (A2IM). The aim was to tear down borders between the German, European and US music markets and to promote the exchange of culture and music. And of course to showcase 7 bands and artists on one evening in the Lower East Side in one of the hottest music cities in the world!

The Reeperbahn Festival delegation traveled with representatives of 45 companies from all over Europe - more than in 2018. In the panel #HowWeListen, European and American representatives of the music industry discussed music consumption and distribution in the age of Youtube and Spotify on Tuesday.

Wednesday evening began with the announcement of the members of the jury for the Anchor Award 2019 led by jury president and producer legend Tony Visconti. Other members include producer Bob Rock, songwriter Kate Nash, singer and producer Peaches, Australian radio and television presenter Zan Rowe and Beatsteaks singer Arnim Teutoburg-Weiß.

The highlight of the evening was an international line-up of concerts by artists from both sides of the Atlantic, which wound its way musically from R'n'B to indie rock and garage punk: Surfbort (US), Renata Zeiguer (US), Gurr (DE), Mira Lu Kovacs (AT), Leoniden (DE), Ori (IL), Yes We Mystic (CA).

As part of the Germany Year USA, the "Sequencer Tour" is sponsored by the Federal Foreign Office, organized by the Goethe-Institut and supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
