One of the joys of Superbooth, the show for musicians, producers and synthesists in Berlin in April 2017, is the sheer number of events, workshops, concerts and talks. Yes, there are over 160 exhibitors there this year. There'll be the bigger companies like Roland, Yamaha, Novation, Ableton, Korg and Native Instruments.
At the beating heart of Superbooth are the indies, the one or two-person companies that work stupidly long hours creating unusual synths, modules, devices and controllers for little profit, and receive cult status.
It's a beautiful thing to witness the smaller companies that get drowned out or ignored at most music trade shows have a real space and voice and be somewhere they are the stars of the show. Kudos to Andreas Schneider for bringing Superbooth to the world as an independent show for a second year.
But, I digress. The real news today is that Superbooth (20-22 April, 2017) has released its schedule for events. These include DIY workshops, concerts, evening events and, of course, the infamous Gespracheskonzerte (part talk, part concert).
Note: you'll need to book in advance to reserve DIY workshop places!
