Discover and experiment with electronic music | Family event for kids aged 6 and up

miniBOOTH 2024

Get your ears on red alert! miniBOOTH is entering its second round!

Getting the next generation excited about electronic music - that's the aim of miniBOOTH , the first music and trade fair for children and young people. Taking place immediately before SUPERBOOTH, Europe's biggest fair for electronic music and electronic instruments, miniBOOTH is sure to set a few pulses racing across the Wuhlheide Park. 

The focus of miniBOOTH is getting kids to discover a range of electronic sounds in a fun way. They'll see how to make their own music and then potentially alter it or combine it with their own voice. They'll also get to use or even make various more unusual instruments. And of course there will be plenty of opportunity to let off steam with dance moves guaranteed.

While the kids are busy making unique sounds, the parents can look forward to a fantastic concert line-up. Asa808 from the queer-feminist Soliparty-Kollektiv & Label TOYS Berlin, Wellen.Brecher from the inclusive techno collective Ick mach Welle, Ina West in Duo mit Drums and chilled-out mix of techno, trance, neo-classic and Jazz makes Pentecost at the FEZ an absolutely hopping party experience.
