where does all this come from?


The idea of Superbooth has already a history of 20 years. It all started as a part of the Musikmesse in Frankfurt, when a handful of friends and likeminded nerds created a very own and special spot for synth enthusiasts. This common space presented a collection of small and passionate manufacturers of exotic hardware and electronic music instruments. The (original) SuperBooth.

The purpose of this shared space was to provide small and starting brands the chance to afford the costs of a presence on a big event like Musikmesse. But even more, to present a collective spirit and simply making music together. No focus on the pure brand presentation, but demonstrating what you can actually do with these spaced out instruments when connecting and combining them with each other.
At this time, everyone was telling that music is made with computers now. After having made unforgettable happenings at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt over the years, the Schneider mobile modular travelled to London, to Poland and the team also played some gigs in Berlin clubs.

In 2015, HerrSchneider decided to take SuperBooth out of Frankfurt and transform it into a new format. He brought it to Berlin to create his very own version of a specialist trade fair. In 2016 the first standalone Superbooth opened its doors to the Funkhaus Berlin and welcomed 96 exhibitors for its premiere. These first three days of Superbooth turned out to an intense, unique atmosphere of communicating and celebrating, where almost everyone left with a package of outstanding memories.

For the following years we found a new home and since 2017 Superbooth is located in a very special venue, the FEZ-Berlin with its wonderful green surounding and perfect stages for our festival program. The amount of attending manufacturer increased rapidly and in 2019 we reached an overwhelming amount of 230 exhibitors. In 2020, the big show of 5 years Superbooth Berlin was planned and then a pandemic took over big parts of our lifes worldwide and our plans resulted in the Superbooth 20 Home Edition, which was the very first online event already in April 2020.

After this tough time of no events and shows during the ongoing pandemic we tried to stay confident and prepared everything for our first outdoor edition in September 2021, which turned out one of the best Superbooth events happened so far. It was a very special time with all the security restrictions and being mostly outdoors in the wonderful wood area of the FEZ.

In 2022 we were finally able to come back to our beloved Superbooth time of the year in May. And then...the SUPERBOOTH22 was just an incredible and intense experience with uncountable moments of friendship, like-minded nerds and a strong synth community.
