CIMA is excited to be heading back to Germany for Reeperbahn 2023. We’ll once again be hosting Canada House and presenting showcases. This is a fantastic opportunity to access the 4th largest worldwide music market with Reeperbahn attracting thousands of artists and music industry professionals from across the globe. To learn more about Reeperbahn click here.

We’re currently looking for bands/artists that can showcase at this year’s Canada House, so here’s your chance!

Please note this application is open to partner hosts as well.

When: September 20-23, 2023 (Possible pre-event in Berlin)

Where: Hamburg, Germany

Details: If you are applying for showcases, you will not be charged. If you are accepted the presenter of the showcase will be charged (ie. A provincial host partner of CIMA's). Please note that each artist must have a business representative. Companies interested in participating in just the business portion of this mission (no showcasing artist) will be invoiced once this application is complete.

Pre-Event/Showcase in Berlin: CIMA may also be holding a pre-Reeperbahn showcase and biz event in Berlin. On the form please let us know if your Reeperbahn artist is interested in applying for that as well. All biz participants will be invited to attend the business events in Berlin.

Fees: For business packages, you will be invoiced separately based on your participation in Hamburg and/or Berlin. Please note that Canada House showcases are co-presented by the provincial music associations, partners and funders. These showcasing costs will be incurred by the presenting partner.

How to Apply:

1. Fill out CIMA’s Canada House application form here.

2. Complete Reeperbahn’s artist application form here. (Note that the deadline is August 11 but artists are encouraged to apply as early as possible, and by mid-June at the latest, if they are interested in a Canada House slot. This allows for adequate time for marketing, promotion and to obtain funding)

3. Contact your local provincial music association to discuss your export plan for the German market (ex. Alberta Music, Manitoba Music, Music BC, MusicOntario, Music New Brunswick, Music Nova Scotia, Music PEI, Music Yukon, SaskMusic, SODEC etc)

Please note that you must complete both Reeperbahn’s application form and CIMA’s Canada House form in order to be considered for a play at Canada House during Reeperbahn.
