Respecting the current situation this years SUPERBOOTH2020 is officially cancelled. The organizers were already able to talk to the venue and to find a new date: May 6th til 8th, 2021 in the wonderful FEZ Berlin again.
Superbooth Berlin expresses its thanks to the exhibiting partners and companies for their trust and for demonstrating solidarity, for offering their financial support now to let Superbooth “survive” this complicated situation. Andreas Schneider states: “Without this we could have run into real problems with this cancellation, thank you again. Also we would like to say thank you to all the Artists, active Partners, Suppliers and the whole staff team for their support already until now. We are very sorry, we had to go this way now. Asap we will get in touch with you to clear up the final settings and start planning 2021 soon.”
HerrSchneider is not resting, he is already planning some workshops online in the days where SUPERBOOTH20 could have happened once the situation will allow that, definitely without any audience.
And there are more news by HerrSchneider: “Starting now SchneidersLaden will be closed for visitors, cause who needs modulars? We will go ahead online, will help you on the phone and will deliver as long as stock lasts and as long as the Paketfritzen will ship it to you, who knows whats next?”
We are already looking forward to 2021 when we can all meet again at the worlds biggest synthesizer event – Superbooth Berlin.
This was the original SUPERBOOTH20 announcement:
SUPERBOOTH20 will show all the latest developments in the fields of electronic musical instruments, synthesizers, audio effects, drum computers, music software and all sorts of bizarre and innovative products from April 23-25. About two hundred exhibitors from all over the world will bring the latest developments for the production of electronic music to Berlin.
Most of the exhibitors of the last few years are also represented at the fair this year, the list ranges from Ableton to Zoom, from small to large and from analog to digital. Visitors can also look forward to seeing new faces. Among the newcomers are Noise Engineering and Supercritical Synthesizers from the modular synthesizer segment, Chase Bliss from the guitar effects segment and Bettermaker from the outboard segment and many more. For the exhibitor area additional space has been rented in the FEZ Berlin. A daily updated list of exhibitors can be found here. There are also new event areas in the outdoor area, especially for not-for-sale electronic musical instruments and installations – curated by Adam Chalk from the Galerie GH36 in Berlin Mitte.
You can already get an impression of the final concert program by looking at the artists who have already been confirmed. Four large stages offer an exciting mixture of the whole range of electronic music until late in the evening. A special experience is provided by the seaside stage, which will be equipped with a 3D sound system from NewAudioTechnology this year. One of the best theremin players in the world – Carolina Eyck – will be demonstrating her skills on it.
This is just a small selection of this year’s concerts at SUPERBOOTH20. On the official homepage new names and times are added constantly, you can find them here.
The Education area offers a varied program that brings several school classes and other interested participants closer to the world of electronic sound production and composition. This area is supported by the Miller-Zillmer Foundation.
Gammons Modular Synthesizer Ensemble introduces students to the topic with a dozen smaller modular systems. Together they develop a composition that the school classes perform daily between 1:30 and 2:00 pm in the auditorium. In addition, Leaf Audio offer a workshop on soldering the Microphonic Soundbox. The team of Selbstgebaute Musik invites for a workshop with the Instrumentenautomatenorchester. And the organizers are also pleased to announce the cooperation with the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, who will offer the workshop Creative Sound Safari.
The boat shuttles take the passengers to the FEZ in the morning and back to Berlin Mitte in the evening after the event. But by leaving SUPERBOOTH20 the music doesn’t have to stop yet – for the return trips to Berlin Mitte there are concerts and DJ sets on some of the boat shuttles. In order to experience these exclusive events on the river Spree, it is recommended to book your ticket online in time.
The return trips end near the Jannowitzbrücke. From there it is only a few minutes’ walk to the nearby official SUPERBOOTH20 parties at OHM, Melancholie 2 or C-Base.
SUPERBOOTH20 now has its own online shop: In addition to the intended significant simplification in purchasing additional trade fair services, there are already some of the popular T-shirts and other merchandise available: shop.superbooth.com
