2022 saw the seventh year of partnership between the festival and the DIY team. After the hybrid pandemic event Reeperbahn festival was back with a vengeance with well subscribed panels and talks and a completely sold out Saturday finale attracting locals as well as delegates with venues packed across the city.
After two years respectively online and socially distanced – it’s back in full force, and with an artistic calibre worthy of the accolade. With an line up (to only scratch the surface) which included New York’s Caroline Rose, Suffolk singer Dylan, Austria’s Good Wilson , and Australia’s HighSchool, and German-Canadian pop powerhouse Alice Merton to close out proceedings, it was a truly interational showcase of young talent.
We kicked off at the iconic Molotow for DIY’s own stage with a line up of Stone, Goa Express, The Mysterines and Lime Garden. If the buzz in the UK around Lime Garden is tangible, then news has clearly reached Germany too: not only were the Brighton quartet nominated for the festival’s rising talent Anchor Award, but they also have Molotow packed to capacity. One in one out from doors at 7.30.
DIY’s week ended with the live “spoken word” event of DIY in conversation with Glasgow’s buzziest band – Vlure. This took place inside the artists village and was open to the public, recorded inside the St Pauli football coach! It will be available as a podcast post event.
