Musikmesse 2016 takes place Thursday 7th April to Sunday 10th April at the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre. The shows sister event, Prolight + Sound is now fully underway and will run until Friday 8th April.
This time last year, we were all subject to widespread and frequent speculation regarding the future of Musikmesse and its format for shows to come, with the possibility of the show taking place at a later date in the calendar year and whether the show's audience would change, becoming more domesticated.
Now 12 months on and with just two days to go before the 2016 Musikmesse show begins, despite the sister event Prolight + Sound starting today, everyone has a much clearer picture and understanding of what to expect from this years show and what the 'new concept' entales.
