Reeperbahnfestival 2021

Last week the Reeperbahn Festival took place for the 16th time in Hamburg from 22 to 25 September. With 300 concerts on about 35 stages, the festival was once again able to inspire with big and small artists. Even strict Covid-19 restrictions with very limited numbers of visitors, fixedly marked standing places and the invitation to enjoy the music “without dancing and excessively moving” could not dampen the joy of the festival. Of course, we from Fanklub couldn’t miss it.

On the very first day, the Hamburg music agency Backseat together with Fanklub invited music lovers to the showcase in the Grüner Jäger. In almost untypically nice weather guests were able to get to know Fanklub better, first starting on the terrace, before the actual program began later in the Grünen Jäger itself. This stage was opened by Roosmarijn, who was able to inspire with her experimental, melodic pop. She was followed by Blanks, who could be described as indie pop at its finest, as could be seen from the crowd of visitors - fortunately, the concerts were also streamed live. The finale of the day was The Cool Quest, who sent the guest of the Jäger with hip-hop with maximum positive vibes into the rest of the evening.

Day number two Fanklub hosted the open-air stage Spielbudenplatz, naturally with very suitable rainy weather. This time together with the viennese label LasVegas Records, we were once again able to share our project with musicians and people from the music business before the acts took over. ELIS NOA started at 18:45 and they brought along the sun in addition to their emotional music. The Viennese duo was followed by Ro Bergman with band, who presented his new EP “HI-Lo” to the visitors. PIPPA also had new music in petto and performed some songs from her EP “Lifestream” scheduled for release the following day. As the last act on Thursday, she rocked the Spielbudenplatz, before bidding the visitors a good night.

For the Fanklub team, the remaining Friday and Saturday meant meetings, business pitches, business lunches and of course a lot of great music in and around St. Pauli. Conclusion: Strict restrictions or not, a visit to the Reeperbahn Festival is always worthwhile.
