Sample Music Festival
Since 2015 we organise the Sample Music Festival in Berlin. The SMF is the world's first music conference for DJing, Turntablism and Controllerism - an interdisciplinary podium for expertise, discussion and high-quality live performance. The three-day event is spread over various locations and is now attracting visitors from 15 different nations to visit Berlin.
Since day one we have worked closely with cultural institutions and training establishments for music. Our mission is to transcend boundaries between the underground scene and the academic field of music. Using research and development to build on existing knowledge to create new knowledge. We can learn from each other, so be a part of it!
Prolight + Sound
This year, Sample Music Festival has partnered with Musikmesse / Prolight+Sound Frankfurt - Europe’s largest event for musical performance and technology. For the entire duration of the show, we’ve installed a musical interaction area in cooperation with some of the industry’s leading brands.
The results exceeded our most optimistic expectations: throughout all four days of the show, our musical interaction area with a massive showcase stage and a hands-on Jam Box attracted an international audience of all ages to watch and experiment on their own. Media coverage of performances and interviews has allowed us to bring our various art forms closer to the public’s eye, and we’re already hatching plans to continue our mission to legitimize turntables and MIDI controllers as fully-fledged musical instruments in 2020.
Prolight & Sound Middle East 2019
The SampleMusicFestival team is more than satisfied: "We have succeeded in creating our first international event and looking forward to proceeding on that." During the Prolight & Sound Middle East 2019 in Dubai , visitors joint an exciting program of workshops, showcases, and a B4B scratch competitions. In our 110 sqm area, we allowed visitors to experience and get their hands on the latest technology.
