Set in the commercial hotbed of Frankfurt, Musikmesse is most known for its massive musical instrument expo. This year, the trade show will expand its scope with a live music portion showcasing Europe’s rising talent. Over the course of 3 nights (April 11 -13), leading music companies from Russia, Latvia, Luxembourg, Hungary and Ireland will be presenting their finest artists.
Last year, Musikmesse partnered with Prolight + Sound to bring in over 100 thousand visitors from 144 countries. As the trade show continues to revolutionize the music industry and tech scene, that number is expected to swell. And an audience rich with exhibitors and burgeoning artists makes Musikmesse a networking hot spot on par with SXSW.
According to youbloom’s CEO Phil Harrington, “youbloomDublin obviously has a clear interest in showcasing Irish talent abroad and Musikmesse -Frankfurt clearly offers a great platform for connecting artists with potential new international business partners. Yet, there is more to it for the overall youbloom brand portfolio, as we’re currently launching a new online service, targeting musicians worldwide, called youbloomConnect.”
The showcases will take place at Hotel Maritim, right next to Messe Frankfurt, from 18:00 – 22:00 each night on April 11th,12 and 13th, 2018.
