Many national and international exhibitors and their innovative synthesizers and effect devices attract thousands of music makers to FEZ-Berlin every year. Equally attractive are the numerous concerts and special events. These include many workshops that invite you to join in, the SchneidersLaden Tour and the comfortable arrival by boat shuttle from Berlin Mitte.
Stage program: This year, SUPERBOOTH21 will feature four stages. In addition to the auditorium and the seaside stage, two new venues will be added: the Finnhütten and the Fuchsbau. In the auditorium, there will be discussion concerts and talks – with Jean-Michel Jarre, Reinhold Heil, Atom TM and T.Raumschmiere among others. Early Wednesday evening, the Miller-Zillmer-Foundation will present itself to invited guests in the auditorium, where it will celebrate its two-year anniversary. This year the Miller-Zillmer-Foundation makes possible the workshop series with Gammon and his Modular Synthesizer Ensemble, as well as – in cooperation with Mute Artists Ltd. – the headlining concerts on the seaside stage every evening: Yann Tiersen, hackedepicciotto, JakoJako and Pole.
The past 18 months have left room for many artists to go into the studio and write new music. SUPERBOOTH21 is one of the first opportunities to bring the results of these processes on stage and so there are some premieres to see. Yann Tiersen (Mute, release date: August 27, 2021) presents his new album “Kerber”. Also from hackedepicciotto (Mute), st.raumen (release date: 30. August 2021) and Pole (Mute) there is something new to hear.
The seaside stage will also feature Maarten Vos, Bloody Mary, Carolina Eyck, Kitmun and Ain TheMachine X SBNH, among others. The stage at the Finnhütten will be hosted by the legendary Tresor. For the 30th anniversary of the Berlin club and label, there will be concerts every night at 8:30 p.m. by e.g. Z.I.P.P.O, Carlota and Artik.
The ever-popular talk concerts will mainly take place at the Fuchsbau. On this new stage, SOMA Laboratory, Verbos Electronics, Haken Audio, Polyend, U-HE, Joranalogue and Bitwig, among others, present their products. In addition, you can also get involved yourself at the Fuchsbau and contribute to the musical background of the event at the Modular Carousel.
Workshops & DIY: The various DIY workshops will take place in the cozy ambience of the DIY tent at the Fuchsbau. Workshops offered are from Befaco, Leaf Audio, Making Sound Machines, Touellskouarn and Shakmat Modular, among others. Due to the severe limitation of places, tickets for the DIY workshops should be booked early. Other workshops include the Tapeloop Workshop on September 18 (for up to 5 participants), the Kreativ Klangsafari in cooperation with the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, and of course Gammon’s Modular Synthesizer Ensemble, who will once again be working on a daily performance with students and performing it at 1:30pm.
Tickets for many workshops can already be booked online and can be found here.
Livestream & virtual talk concerts: Those who are unable to attend SUPERBOOTH21 in person can look forward to the daily livestream. Here, the highlights of the various stages will be shown in a three-hour program. This also includes the virtual talk concerts, which offer exhibitors who cannot come to SUPERBOOTH21 the unique opportunity to present themselves to the audience simultaneously online and on site – live on the screen in the auditorium. Among other things, the talk concerts by and with Noise Engineering and Animal Factory Amplification will be presented here.
Boat shuttle: The boat shuttle departs daily from the old historic harbor in Berlin Mitte in the direction of FEZ-Berlin. The landing stage can be found at Mellowpark. From here there are precise signs to find the right way to FEZ-Berlin. Tickets for the boat shuttle are available now and are very limited. It is advisable to be quick! Here you can get the tickets.
SchneidersLaden Tour: The tour offers a behind-the-scenes look at Germany’s most important synthesizer store – SchneidersLaden. For this tour Andreas Schneider has asked one of his first employees to tell interested customers about the history of SchneidersLaden, SchneidersBuero and Superbooth – and to provide insights into the current showrooms and behind the scenes of SchneidersLaden in Berlin Kreuzberg.
What’s left to say? Stay healthy everyone and get vaccinated so we can spend a wonderful SUPERBOOTH21 together in September!
