NEXT loves Reeperbahn Festival!

With more than 40,000 visitors each year, 900+ concerts, shows and a conference for music professionals, the Reeperbahn Festival is one of the most important meeting places for the music industry worldwide. Europe’s largest club festival creates a buzzing framework for NEXT and offers some great extras.

A unique benefit for NEXT attendees

NEXT18 attendees are granted priority access to the public programme via delegates lane (concerts, showcases, literature, film, etc., subject to capacity). Just make sure to get your Reeperbahn Festival wristband when you enter NEXT18 and always have your NEXT badge with you. By the way: With your Reeperbahn Festival wristband you are allowed to use the public transportation service around Hamburg free of charge on the days that you have registered for (but only to and from the festival).
