The Sample Music Festival is a musical interaction festival for turntablism, finger drumming and music production. It provides various installments  for jam sessions, a podium to exchange expert knowledge, open discussions, and high quality live performances. Making music by means of sampling in electronic music will be more transparent and viewed from a theoretical standpoint using lectures, discussions, and interactive workshops. 


The annual symposium and the video capturing of the lectures create invaluable content, ensuring sustainability for the next generation.


Besides the different showcases, experts and brand representatives present equipment in the exhibition area, allowing attendees to get hands-on experience with the newest gear.
