“There is great talent in Australia and the German audiences loves artists from Down Under. We always have a special eye on that market – which won’t stop in the future either! Also, on a personal note, I somehow always end up at the bar with an Aussie at the end of a good night…” Bjørn Pfarr – Head of Music Programme, Reeperbahn Festival.
