GVL at the Reeperbahn Festival 2023

Last week the Reeperbahn Festival took place in Hamburg with great music and a multi-faceted conference.

From 20 to 23 September, the music world was guest at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg. The industry discussed its most important topics at an extensive conference programme, while international live musicians kept the audience in good mood.

The GVL was there with a full programme: On Wednesday, GVL Managing Director Guido Evers took part in the Music Dialogue of the Hanseatic City of Hamburg 2023. At this format, which traditionally takes place immediately before the start of the festival, decision-makers from the music industry meet to discuss current developments in the music industry.

Our colleagues from the rights service explained to interested performers and music entrepreneurs the great 1x1 of the GVL in two workshops. And finally, on Friday, it was "S(ch)nacken mit der GVL und der Initiative Musik" at a reception in the "Reep" restaurant - with a direct view of the Reeperbahn and the festival grounds.

"Questions about diversity in the music industry, artificial intelligence as an opportunity or a challenge and the current developments among entertainers - at the Reeperbahn Festival conference we come across the topics that are currently occupying us and the industry. The personal exchange with musicians, agencies and labels is a lot of fun and indispensable for us as a service company."
