Messe Frankfurt works together with the music industry to develop concepts for Musikmesse in 2022
For the upcoming edition, a spring date is planned within the time frame of Prolight + Sound in April 2022. Together with the sector, its associations and other partners from the cultural and creative industries, formats and contents are being developed for an event that will take into account the requirements and objectives of all participants.
Musikmesse to remain an independent event. New dates in October 2021.
Recent reports in the media about a possible merger of Musikmesse with the Frankfurter Buchmesse as part of a creative festival require correction. The next Musikmesse will be held as an independent event at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre from 22 to 24 October 2021. At the same time, discussions are currently being held with participants from the culture and creative sector with a view to holding other events at the Exhibition Centre during the same time slot. Moreover, Musikmesse is entering into a collaborative agreement with THE ARTS+, the flagship of the Frankfurter Buchmesse for creative content. The press conference to announce these plans, which was originally planned for Tuesday, 30 June, has been cancelled. Further information will be provided at a later date.
