The annual Reeperbahn Festival in September is the perfect way to get an overview of St.Pauli's many live music venues.
For four days in September, the international music community meets in St. Pauli district. The eponymous festival takes place on and all around the Reeperbahn strip. As colourful and diverse as the area is the choice of locations and international performing artists: concerts will be hosted in places as different as Molotow music club and the St. Pauli church. For a very special treat, festival-goers will even be able to see some rare performances in the brand new Elbphilharmonie Hamburg concert venue. With more than 360 different concerts, readings, art happenings and movie screenings, the festival is packed brimful with highlights for every music lover. From heavy metal and punk to indie, hip-hop, jazz and soul: visitors will have plenty of opportunity to broaden their musical minds beyond genre boundaries.

Music Business Convention
As much as there's to see and do for music fans, Reeperbahn Festival also doubles as one of the most important conferences of the music industry. Representatives of the leading music labels come together and discuss strategies and the latest trends. Among the most significant dates of the event are the ceremonies for the ANCHOR International Music Awards and the International Music Journalism Awards.
Music Film Contest
The 2017 edition of Reeperbahn Festival introduced a new highlight to the already packed schedule: out of 24 nominees, the jury picked their favourite new music film as part of the UNERHÖRT music film festival.
