NEXT goes Reeperbahn Festival

Yeah, yeah! NEXT is going to become the digital part of the international Reeperbahn Festival in September.

This year, NEXT will be dovetailing with Hamburg’s fantastic Reeperbahn Festival both in space and content. With a top class programme, NEXT will enhance the offering of Germany‘s largest club festival with exciting digital elements.

With more than 30,000 visitors each year, the Reeperbahn Festival is amongst the most important meeting points of the European music scene, and takes place this year from 23th to 26th September. Together NEXT and Reeperbahn Festival will make Hamburg the stage for a unique type of festival in Europe: one which blends a passion for creativity and digital, as well as for business and entertainment.

From 2015 on, NEXT will be jointly organised by the agencies SinnerSchrader and FAKTOR 3, who are developing new programme formats for digital decision-makers in companies, agencies and start-ups.

NEXT dates: 24th and 25th September

The central thread of NEXT will take place on the 24th and 25th September in Schmidts Tivoli theatre on Spielbudenplatz, right in the heart of the Reeperbahn Festival. In addition, the many common elements of both programmes, centering around the theme of interactive, will bring together delegates attending both events.

Matthias Schrader, CEO of SinnerSchrader and founder of NEXT says:

The Reeperbahn Festival provides us with a fantastic creative environment for new formats with which we will inspire and connect the digital movers and shakers. In partnership with FAKTOR 3 we are developing the NEXT brand into a platform, with which we position digital as a calling – and where work and passion come together.

The partnership is also supporting the efforts of the Reeperbahn Festival to unite the digital economy and the music sector in a single location. Detlef Schwarte, Director of the Reeperbahn Festival Conference:

Our goal is to further develop the Reeperbahn Festival as an all-round creative festival at the intersection of business innovation and popular culture. With NEXT we have found the right partner to position the interactive programme in a new way, and to bring together representatives from both events with a common offering.
