Musikmesse 2020 will be postponed / "Musikmesse Plaza" and "Musikmesse Festival" will take place

Due to the increasing spread of Covid-19 in Europe, Messe Frankfurt has decided to postpone Musikmesse 2020. The health of exhibitors, visitors, partners and employees is Messe Frankfurt's top priority. The new date will be announced shortly. Visitor tickets will retain their validity.

From today's perspective, the pop-up experience market "Musikmesse Plaza" (3 and 4 April) and the "Musikmesse Festival" (31 March to 4 April 2020) can take place on the planned dates. These events are aimed primarily at a regional audience from the greater Frankfurt area.

The continued increase in the spread of Covid-19 in Europe necessitated a new assessment of the situation in close consultation with the Frankfurt City Health Department. The aim is to avoid that participants of the fair come from risk areas and visit the fair ill. As these trade fair participants may also be infected with Covid-19, a health check is necessary to counteract any further spread of infection. This is an essential part of the infectious risk assessment. Messe Frankfurt is unable to implement the necessary measures. In addition, there are increasing travel restrictions that make it difficult for potential visitors and exhibitors alike to attend the fair.

"The current situation is creating challenges for trade fair organisers from all parts of the world. We regret that the 40th anniversary edition of Musikmesse will not be able to open its doors from 1 to 4 April. Nevertheless, we look forward to great concert experiences for fans from the region at the Musikmesse Festival throughout Frankfurt. We also continue to invite music enthusiasts to the 'Musikmesse Plaza', where they can experience and buy instruments, sound recordings and lifestyle products and take part in numerous events", says Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt GmbH.
