REEPERBAHN FESTIVAL X WISE
At the Danish Cultural Center — 798, Beijing
Saturday, May 18, 18:30–23:00 + Sunday, May 19, 17:00–22:00
This year WISE added a two-night music program, presented by the Reeperbahn Festival, and hosting free live showcases of Europe's biggest music platform with some of the most promising musical talents from Europe and China.
From the newly selected participants for Rap of China Lows0n (Xiamen) via David Boring's Art-Punk (Hong Kong), Modeselektor's new Electro-Grime protégé Catnapp (Germany), to China's next indie-hope The Hormones (Chengdu), music-tech pioneer CHAGALL (Netherlands), the Nick Cavish indie-ballads of Jungstötter (Germany), Mavi Phoenix’s (Austria) refreshingly poppy take on hip hop, and China’s electronic legends White+ (Beijing), the program was poised to cross boundaries and genres.
Six out of eight acts were female-led, making WISE X Reeperbahn Festival the first event in mainland China to partner up with Keychange, an European Initiative aimed at ensuring a balanced gender ratio in the music world. Empowered by the exchange program with Reeperbahn Festival, 20 additional European delegates at the crossroads of music and technology were able to participate WISE.
