Sample Music Festival
31 March – 3 April 2020 Frankfurt am Main Tickets & Registration

Sample Music Festival

The Sample Music Festival now has its own area in the Foyer of Hall 4.0 at Musikmesse / Prolight + Sound. There, you can immerse yourself in the various aspects of DJ culture daily.  

The primary aim of the Sample Music Festival is not to present equipment but rather to encourage active visitor participation. Away from the competition between the individual brands, combining different items of equipment leads to exciting applications – active and practical. Naturally, networking is also on the programme and you can also follow everything on social media, as well as discover how the content spreads there. Product experts from companies such as Ambleton, Stanton and Native Instruments will pass on their specialist knowledge, lead the discussions, answer questions and exchange ideas and information.


  • Workshops & Showcase on subjects such as DJing (EDM, club, hip hop, electronic music), finger drumming, controllerism, turntablism and music apps
  • Jam & Hands On Situations with expert leaders and using the latest music technology

10 artists will be giving demonstrations of their skills – all are well-known names from the DJing, turntablism and controllerism scene and product specialists for the sector’s top brands.
