The Berlin singer songwriter captivates the audience with a timeless and catchy Indie Pop. Ian Late’s songs tell a story of life in the big city, of personal relationships and the confrontation with oneself. His striking voice is accompanied by guitar, bass and drums, all of which fuse into a precise and multi-faceted sound - sometimes driving and rhythmical, sometimes solemn.
Why should you definitely see Ian Late live?Ian Late: Those who attend the Reeperbahn Festival and wish to stop the time, lose themselves in the moment and enjoy Indie Pop songs full of hope, with real depth and a sound that gives you goosebumps, should come by and watch us play.

They refer to their own music as "Post Kraut". Darjeeling. The band’s style is influenced by the sound of the Beatles, Pink Floyd or Tame Impala. From those materials, the young Wuppertal musicians create musical stories with a great attention to detail. During this process, they like to use extravagant stylistic elements. On their current album, "Hokus Pokus", a historic church organ can be heard.
And what is the audience going to hear during your performance?Darjeeling: "Free tea for all and an oeuvre on the fly, adolescent dreaminess, infantile chuckling and chortling and repetitive brute force."
Wednesday, 18 September 2019 10.50 – 11.30 pmSommersalon
Different in style, but equally enchanting is “Trip-Pop” performed by AYU. The Swiss singer and producer, based in Hamburg, delights the audience with a mix of Pop, Indie and Electronica. Her expressive voice and the rhythmic, futuristic beats result in a harmonious mix which catches on quickly and has been rightly referred to as “modern, emotional and complex Pop” by the Berner Zeitung (Berne newspaper).
What makes AYU live performances so unique?AYU: "The AYU show becomes a massive boombayu: My AY team and I release ayuanic live energies with many new songs and light effects in tow - sometimes in a stormy style, sometimes in smooth waves. AYU ready to rumble, ayayay?"

The four musicians from East Frisia make sure that the conclusion of the evening will be full of energy. Roast Apple stands for fresh, danceable Indie Pop which will knock the audience out of their chairs during its live performance. Inspired by Two Door Cinema Club and Parcels, Abba and Modern Talking, the chaps with the guitars, bass, drums and synthesizer play a pushy, driving sound on stage and thus brings the audience to boiling point. By way of festival appearances across Europe, they have already gathered a broad fan community within a short range of time and therefore a worthy band playing the finale of the GEMA showcase at the Reeperbahn Festival 2019.
3 points why you must not miss out on Roast Apple?Roast Apple: "1. Because we want to take you with us into a world of Funk, Disco and Indie where you can be whatever you want. 2. Because we provide you with the best cabriolet Pop which makes you dance. 3. Because you don’t want to miss out on experiencing the chubby Chippendales of Indie Pop performing "live and in colour"."
