Thanks for participating!

»Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs« will return in 2018.

Over 800 young people from across (almost) the entire world applied in 2017 for »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs«, the international workshop-programme and networking platform for young music professionals. An expert jury picked the 250 participants for the 45 workshops. Thanks to a full scholarship provided by the Goethe-Institut, 10 young musicians from developing nations were invited to come to Berlin and joined »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs« to further professionalise their careers and build international networks in the music business.

Over the course of two days they learned from influential artists like Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten), Black Cracker(in collaboration with Native Instruments), Max Rieger of All diese Gewalt, Noveller, Sky Deep and Throwing Shade, as well as industry professionals like Thomas Jepsen (Roskilde Festival), label managers Christof Ellinghaus (City Slang)and Horst Weidenmüller (!K7), music journalist Dirk Peitz and Andrea Götzke and Melissa Perales of Torstraßen Festival among others.

Mona Rübsamen, the general manager of FluxFM, and the music journalist Amanda Petrusich opened each day of »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs« 2017 with a keynote speech.
