Prolight + Sound 2021 cancelled, 2022 dates announced

Frankfurt’s Prolight + Sound has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was due to take place In April.

Organisers at Messe Frankfurt have been forced to pull the plug on this year’s show, having initially hoped that the COVID crisis would have subsided sufficiently for an in-person gathering to take place in April. However, in a statement issued today (January 18), organisers have confirmed that the next Prolight + Sound will be held from April 26-29, 2022.

“The coronavirus pandemic has taken centre-stage, and our plans have not escaped its impact,” said Detlef Braun, member of the executive board of Messe Frankfurt. In light of the current situation, it would not be possible for us to satisfy our customers’ requirements for international trade fairs in April or May,” 

Messe Frankfurt is currently planning a programme of digital Prolight + Sound content.

Meanwhile, today sees the digital iteration of the annual NAMM Show – NAMM Believe In Music Week – get underway. The physical edition of the event was also cancelled due to the pandemic.
