Reeperbahn 2022. Germany


For the second year in a row, Ukraine was presented at Reeperbahn Festival, one of the most influential music business events in the world, by the official delegation. On September, 23 during the reception, participants were able to chat with business people and band representatives about the possible collaborations, support actions and enjoy some drinks and fine music together.

This year there was a very diverse line-up from multi-instrumentalist electronic girl duo Krapka;KOMA, break-beat, funk, electro dub band Junket, dreamy indie pop by Tonka and travel through the time and space with trippy phyhodelia with elements of hard rock from Love'n'Joy. All the bands were extremely vocal and active raising awareness about russian invasion in Ukraine, playing tons of concerts, volunteering and fundraising. Organized by independent initiative Music Export Ukraine and Ukrainian Institute

It was also amazing to see more Ukrainian acts playing this year at Reeperbahn, along with keynote interview with Alyona Alyona and a separate discussion panel, where Vald Yaremchuk (Atlas) shared the current state of Ukrainian music sphere. Happy to be a part of a bigger story when it comes to spreading the word about Ukraine!
