NEXT loves Reeperbahn Festival

With more than 40,000 visitors each year, the Reeperbahn Festival with its concerts and a conference for music professionals is one of the most important meeting places for the music industry worldwide and is Europe’s largest club festival. For NEXT19 and its attendees (who are granted priority access to the festival as well as the conference) it will be a fun setting, buzzing with energy during the day, and even more electric at night.
