Update: SUPERBOOTH20 had to be cancelled – New date: 6.-8. May 2021

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.

Program

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.

  • The first day promises to be a great experience already – with an experimental set by Headless Horseman, followed by the concert of the British EBM band Nitzer Ebb on the seaside stage.  At the end of the day Techno veteran Surgeon will play in the big K1. Also already confirmed is a performance by Emika – she combines her skills as sound designer, classically trained composer and versatile singer and songwriter.
  • On Friday the seaside stage will be very lively with T.Raumschmiere & FuCKetYbUcKetY. Also on the seaside stage Cosmin TRG shows his skills. Besides further concerts of Nguyễn + Transitory and Kamikaze Space Programme Bernard Rasinger shows an extraordinary laser performance – controlled by his modular system.
  • On Saturday, MATTHS will play (slightly) quieter tunes on the seaside stage, before Lady Starlight performs uncompromising techno. Not to be missed is the A/V show of hackedepicciotto with Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten) & Danielle de Picciotto and the concerts of Swarm Intelligence and Kitmun.

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.

Education Program

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.

Boat shuttle

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

Superbooth statement on Corona

Here is the official statement by Superbooth Berlin GmbH about the current situation regarding the Coronavirus:

Due to the current situation in the world regarding the Coronavirus, we were asked to state our point of view about this topic. With SUPERBOOTH20 starting in about 8 weeks from now, we prefer to rely on facts rather than speculations about the future.

Please check Robert Koch Institute in Berlin for further information (German/English):
https://www.rki.de/DE/Content/InfAZ/N/Neuartiges_Coronavirus/nCoV.html

Without any carelessness about health or risks, we basically are very careful with the daily news spreading and panic producing sensational reports.

We are observing the development, but can not say how the situation will change in the coming weeks. If we have the impression that we should act in any way, we will do so. By now we can only say, the situation in Berlin is safe and we do not want to be part of any speculations.

As long as there is no official ban by the authorities, we have decided to keep on working on the finalization of this year’s Superbooth.

Relax and make music! See you at SUPERBOOTH20!
