Hamburg's Reeperbahn Festival is Germany's largest club festival and a meeting place for Europe's music industry.
Taking place from Wednesday, 25 September to Saturday, 28 September, this year's festival offers once again exciting national and international music acts, as well as a rich support programme. More than 300 gigs with artists from 35 countries and 100 additional programme events will lure music fans, managers and trendsetters to the Reeperbahn at the heart of the St Pauli district.
For the first time, the festival is being extended from three to four days this year. Amidst the very special atmosphere of this former red-light district, visitors can experience music, culture, arts and the music industry first-hand. Besides established artists such as James Blunt, Birdy, Shout Out Louds, Kate Nash, Efterklang, The Strypes, Left Boy and the Hamburg band Kettcar, the 2013 line-up will also include newcomer bands from across the globe.

The Reeperbahn Festival has never been afraid of including commercially successful artists in its line-up ' provided that their music is authentic. This is certainly the case with James Blunt. This former soldier and goose bump creator, whose most famous hits include 'Carry you home' and 'You are beautiful', will be presenting his bold new album 'Moon Landing', which will be released in October.
Coming straight from Ireland, mod band 'The Strypes' will be performing their handcrafted tunes live on stage. The lads, who are in fact still teenagers, perceive themselves as 'the antithesis of contemporary music' and fully embark on the sound of the early 60s.
UK singer-songwriter Birdy, who is inundated in gold and platinum awards, represents the quieter side of the festival. The local heroes from 'Kettcar' will be presenting themselves once again to their hometown before taking a longer creative break, while Danish band 'Efterklang' are currently capturing audiences across Europe with their ambient indie pop.
Numerous other bands from various genres will be playing at this year's festival at more than 70 unique venues of different sizes, among them basement pubs, concert halls, night clubs, bars, theatres, churches, barges, museums and table dance clubs around the St Pauli district.
