The next edition of one of Europe's leading electronic instrument conference is happening next May.
The fair will take place at the FEZ conference centre in East Berlin from May 3rd through 5th. As the 2018 edition is expected to draw more than 5000 visitors, the Westflügel (west wing) of FEZ will be opened to provide space for extra vendors and attendees alike. Over 80% of the exhibitors have been confirmed. You can order tickets on the Superbooth website.
In recent years, Superbooth has built a reputation as a leading expo for electronic instruments and, specifically, modular synthesisers. Unlike larger music tech events like NAMM, Superbooth focuses on presenting small, DIY operations next to bigger companies like Roland and Behringer. While it attracts DJs and producers like Nina Kraviz and Ricardo Villalobos, the expo places an emphasis on engaging with children and families, running a programme of workshops, events and talks for gear nerds and the general public alike. The fair is a project by Schneidersladen, a long-running Berlin-based synth store.

Ok. I spent absolutely wonderful 3 days at Superbooth17. Hope you enjoyed my little report from one of the most important musical gathering of the year. The atmosphere here is very warm and unique and if you are planning to go to Berlin in April next year - this is a TOTAL must visit. It sucks I couldn't get on that boat and hear Tangerine Dream ( the modern version of it) it was sold out but instead I had checked so much mind-blowing gear, couple of lectures and concerts and met many really interesting people-some of them I haven't seen in years but some met for the first time. Superbooth17 has come to an end and it left me totally inspired. Looking very much forward to test what this bad boy #modor #modor nf-1 (amazing digital polyphonic synth) and also new tinrs sequencer both can do. Now that I am on 1,5 month holiday for the first time in 4 years it's time to go back to what is in the end the most essential part of me as an artist -my music. Much ❤️ to you all and thank you Schneider's büro team for organizing such a joyful event! #superbooth17 #snazzyfx #modornf-1 #tinrs #thisisnotrocketscience.nl #analoguesystems @turnlab
