Vintage Concert Audio Show

The Vintage Concert Audio Show presents over 200 exhibits, among them all milestones of the Concert-Audio history of the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Visitors can see how the world looked like before LineArrays and digital desks. Technicians and engineers get their hands back on their "toys" from before the 2000s era.

ISDV - The Professional Association of Self-employed Service Providers in the Entertainment Industry - and VCA – The Vintage Concert Audio Show & Experience - have partnered for a joint-forces booth.

The exhibits have been collected in the deepest cellars and from the farthest warehouse corners in Europe to bring them together in Frankfurt. Everything, from the first WEM, Vox and Marshall PA-systems to Martin Modular, Meyer MSL3, Clairbrothers S4 to the first L'Acoustics line array, will be represented. And in many parts even audible: every day a decade-bound audio panel will be taking place. Sound engineers of the respective time will tell you their story, will philosophize about the technology and, of course, answer the questions of the booth visitors.

The ISDV will be organizing panels with daily changing content and discussion partners from politics, science and industry on topics of "labour and social affairs". Daily rates will be discussed as well as false-self-employment or the future of our industry.

Each night, a get-together will be taking place, where the VCA presents an original set-up of a contemporary PA to invite you to listen and try out. You can experience live recordings from tape recorder, vinyl and compact cassette.

The Vintage Concert Audio Show booth is placed in Forum Level 0.
