11. – 14. April 2018 Frankfurt am Main Tickets & Registration

Musikmesse Festival Arena

The focal point of the outdoor area at Musikmesse will be a huge marquee with room for around 1,500 visitors, which will be the setting for a varied programme of events with national and international artists covering all genres throughout the fair.

With its live concerts and associated product demonstrations, the Festival Arena is weatherproof and is thus the ideal venue for many of the highlights of the Musikmesse programme of events.

The events already confirmed include the finale of the COPA KAPELLA band competition, the grand SchoolJam finale and the SPH and BackstagePro band contests. The concerts will be held within the framework of the Musikmesse Festival after the fair closes for the day.
