  • 5:00pm – 1:00am Reeperbahn Festival x SEQUENCER TOUR USA



    From October 2018, event partners Reeperbahn Festival, re:publica and next media accelerator will be hosting five events in Los Angeles, New York, Portland, Detroit, and Austin. Over the course of the year, Deutschlandjahr USA will see numerous transatlantic projects, events, and workshops come to life in the US. The Year of German-American Friendship (“Deutschlandjahr USA”) is a comprehensive and collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and with support from the Federation of German Industries (BDI).Deutschlandjahr USA is dedicated to exploring cultural issues, as well as questions about just democracies or new avenues within media landscapes.

    As one of Deutschlandjahr USA’s milestone projects, the SEQUENCER TOUR will offer a platform for discussions and exchanges through a series of innovative event formats. With a focus on “Politics & Society,” “Leisure & Lifestyle,” and “Transatlantic Fusion,” its formats include conference programs, showcases, as well as media and music matches.

    What’s the best way to see and hear new exciting music? Go to a club! Reeperbahn Festival will put on an international showcase night featuring up to six up-and-coming bands and artists from Germany, the US, and other countries – and, as one of the principal supporters of the Keychange initiative, the festival is focused on presenting a gender-balanced line-up. The venue and the names of the bands and artists to perform will be announced soon.

    Art Exhibition
    The language of art is universal – and when a music-art combination really works, the art can add a whole new dimension to the music. A successful pairing of the two not infrequently encapsulates the spirit of an entire generation – the Beatles’ album “Revolver” and its iconic cover, for example, or Woodstock and its famous poster image. Right from the start, the interface of art and music has been an important aspect of the Reeperbahn Festival programme, which will round off its visit to Los Angeles by presenting its exhibition “It Started in Hamburg” by Klaus Voormann which will last for several days. The combination of expressed art and music often gets to the heart of the lifestyle of a whole generation. Hardly anyone understands this better than Klaus Voormann whose six decades of comprehensive graphic and musical works are still crucial for the present day pop culture. Displaying iconic cover art for the Beatles album Revolver or assignments for contemporary bands such as Turbonegro or Mando Diao, “It Started in Hamburg” is dedicated to Voorman’s creative work, displaying sketches, graphics, objects and installations.

    Music Matches
    Strong, sustainable transatlantic connections also grow out of good business relations. Reeperbahn Festival
    will organize Music Matches with a focus on sync, and bring together representatives from the German
    music industry and American colleagues. Brief meetings will provide an opportunity for getting acquainted,
    aligning business interests, and developing ideas.

    Curated by re:publica, the conference program focuses on two main topics: Our “Politics & Society” track will
    focus on “Universal Digital Rights.” We’d like to discuss transatlantic topics and current societal
    developments relevant to both the US and Europe. Our “Leisure & Lifestyle” track focuses on topics such as
    digital sovereignty, digital sustainability, and social justice within a digital context.
