GEMA @Reeperbahn Festival 2018: Music, experts and workshops

GEMA will be represented at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg with panels, workshops and a showcase. GEMA members obtain discounted conference tickets.

For eight years now, GEMA has been a partner of the biggest club festival in Europe, which takes place this year between 19 and 22 September in Hamburg. In the course of expert panels at the Reeperbahn Festival conference, GEMA discusses the issues of the industry - for example: GEMA CEO, Dr Harald Heker, illuminates the current challenges in the work to preserve the value of music at the first day of the conference.

In workshops on a variety of digital GEMA services, interested visitors can expand their knowledge relating to online licensing and automated music recognition.

Festival visitors also get their money's worth. On Friday evening, the next musical generation has access to the big stage in the course of the GEMA Showcase: Three bands and one solo artist were able to secure themselves the sought-after spots in the Showcase in the course of the GEMA membership programme. From a myriad of applications, the organisers of the Reeperbahn Festival voted for Hope, Blond, Poem for Jamiro and Laura Carbone.
