musicpark will not take place until 2023
After the cancellation of the 2021 musicpark due to the pandemic, Leipziger Messe has decided not to hold the event in 2022, either. The current pandemic situation is causing massive planning uncertainties with regard to the music experience fair since its focus is on trying out musical instruments as well as emphasising emotions, interactions and variety. Additionally, travel restrictions and the lack of recognition of some vaccines in Germany impose problems for international industry participants, guests and artists. The next musicpark will take place from 10 to 12 June 2023.
Due to the pandemic, the general conditions for musicpark are still uncertain. Even with eased regulations in the summer, the expected hygiene measures would possibly mean that visitors may not try out and test all of the musical instruments. Worldwide travel restrictions and the non-recognition of certain vaccines further complicate planning for international exhibitors and partners. Moreover, the continued difficult economic situation for the music and club scene has to be considered. A real experience fair that thrives on emotions, interactions and variety is not feasible under these circumstances.
musicpark 2023 from 10 to 12 June
"The first musicpark in 2019 was a successful start. The anticipation for the second edition of the music experience fair is correspondingly great," says Markus Geisenberger, Managing Director of Leipziger Messe. "Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow for a continuation next year. We want to make sure there is planning reliability for all those involved. Therefore, the next musicpark will take place from 10 to 12 June 2023.
Following the premiere of musicpark, Leipziger Messe as organiser, decided that the music experience fair would in future open its doors in early summer. Based on feedback from the industry, the event days have further changed to last from Saturday to Monday. In addition, musicpark 2023 will take place parallel to and in cooperation with the traditional Bachfest Leipzig.
Next year, however, visitors will not have to do without the music experience fair altogether. After the positive response at this year's “modell-hobby-spiel” in Leipzig, musicpark will also have its own stand at the next edition of this family fair, which will be held from 30 September to 2 October 2022. Participation in other suitable events is firmly planned.
