Reeperbahn Festival Again Receives Federal Funding

HAMBURG, Germany (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — For
 its
 seventh
 edition 
in 
September
 2012, 
the
 Reeperbahn
 Festival
 will
 once more
 receive
 federal
 funding 
in 
the
 amount
 of
 200,000
 euros 
by 
resolution 
of 
the 
German 
Bundestag.


The festival will take place in Hamburg on September 20-22, 2012.

According
 to
 Minister
 of
 State
 Bernd
 Neumann,
 Commissioner
 for
 Culture
 and
 the
 Media,
 the
 determining
 factor
 for
 the
 approval
 of
 funding
 is
 the
 national
 significance
 of
 the
 Reeperbahn
 Festival 
with 
its 
three pillars:
 Music,
 Campus,
 and
 Arts.


In
 recent
 years
 Germany’s
 largest
 club
 festival—with
 17,500
 visitors
 and
 1,900
 business
 and
 media
 representatives
 from
 over
 thirty
 countries—has
 become
 one
 of
 the
 more
 important 
international
platforms 
for 
the
 music 
industry.


A
 leading
 European
 music
 event,
 the
 Reeperbahn
 Festival
 is
 now
 perceived
 by
 the
 international
 music 
business
 as 
the relevant
 gateway
 to
 the 
German 
market.


Alexander
 Schulz,
 Managing 
Director
 of
 the 
Reeperbahn
 Festival
 GbR
 and 
Inferno 
Events 
is
 pleased
 that 
“the
 positive
 development
 of 
the 
event 
is 
being 
recognised 
with
 funding
 from
 the
Federal
 Government
 of
 Germany
 for
 the 
second
 year 
in 
a 
row,” according to a statement.
