HAMBURG METAL DAYZ >>> START INTO THE FIRST ROUND
24-07-12 16:43 -
The promoters of the Wacken Open Air and of the Reeperbahn Festival are proud to invite you to the first Hamburg Metal Dayz.
From September 20th to 22nd, about 20 bands from the heavier range of music will play at the Markthalle, among them Heaven Shall Burn, Doro, Saxon, Callejon and Kill Devil Hill. There will be panels and roundtable discussions, where music business insiders share their knowledge and discuss topics like „Career aspirations & working in the music business“, „The future of Metal“ and „How to push your own band“. The fans can meet the artists, and therewill be exhibitions, readings, comedy and workshops for musicians.
Another point of interest for business visitors from the Metal genre will be the Reeperbahn Festival Campus with conference program, networking events and showcases. Accreditation is needed (see below). On, Friday, 21nd a special conference panel titled „Fascination Metal: What‘s working better in the world of heavy music?“ will be held, dealing with the reasons for the economic strength of Metal and its commercial characteristics. At the „Metal meet & greet“ that‘s happening afterwards at the Reeperbahn Festival Lounge, visitors and artists from the Hamburg Metal Dayz will have the opportunity for an exchange with the delegates of the Reeperbahn festival.
This makes the first Hamburg Metal Dayz an entertaining and valuable forum for music fans, up-and-coming rockers and business veterans. An updated schedule of bands and activities can be found at www.hamburg-metal-dayz.de.
Detlef Schwarte, Reeperbahn Festival:
„We’re happy to be finally able to offer a place for the Metal business to present itself at the Reeperbahn Festival, and we‘re looking forward to the communication and cooperation with this economically strong, highly professional and especially innovative segment of the music business.“
Holger Hübner, Wacken Open Air:
„So far, Metal and Hard Rock did not have a real home at the Reeperbahn Festival. With the Hamburg Metal Dayz, this changes. We want to give great live shows to the fans, we want to bring labels, promoters and agents together in an entertaining way, and we want to introduce the world of heavy music to the rest of the industry.”
With this cooperation, two festivals are joining forces, that are both internationally renowned, but each with its own distictinve musical identity:
The Wacken Open Air is the most important event for the Metal scene worldwide. Established in 1990, every year more than 70.000 fans from all over the world are traveling to that small village next to the North sea to experience Metal and Hard Rock live and open air.
As an urban club event, the Reeperbahn Festival has been attracting fans to the bars, clubs and theatres of Hamburg-St. Pauli since 2006. In addition to 20.000 visitors every year 2.000 representatives of the music and live entertainment business from 30 different nations gather at the most important industry meeting in Germany.
