Experience musical instruments - the promise at the new musicpark music experience fair is not limited to the numerous stages and live performances.

Be it in the first lessons in the PlayZones or in advanced workshops in the College & Academy - nobody is guaranteed to get bored at the musicpark.

In the six show floors, the exhibition area of ​​the musicpark, musical instruments can not only be admired and examined in multiple versions. Participation and trying out are expressly encouraged at the music experience fair. Whether in introductory courses in the PlayZones, free testing in the Rooms of Doom or with further tips from professionals in College & Academy - even a small acoustic stage is available for musicians who want to present their own music.

PlayZones: First Steps to the Right Instrument

Guitar? Piano? Or do you prefer drums? Every visitor can find out which instrument suits them in the PlayZones. Prior knowledge is not required - the budding musician is spoiled for choice: drums, percussion, guitar, piano, saxophone? If in doubt, everything can be tried out. And for the little ones there is the PlayZone Early Musical Education in Hall 4.

Rooms of Doom and test boxes: Put instruments through their paces
Play and try out instruments in a quiet room undisturbed - this is made possible by the Rooms of Doom and the test boxes at the musicpark. The Rooms of Doom have a selection of pre-installed instruments. Has the right instrument been found in the exhibition area? The respective instrument can then be put through its paces once again in the test cabins. You can choose from a total of six test rooms: Room of Doom Drums, Room of Doom Amps, Room of Doom PA and the three test boxes Band & Orchestra.

Open mic stage: open stage for future stars
Visitors who prefer to be in the spotlight themselves can look forward to the open mic stage. As an “open stage”, the stage is open to every musician to present their own songs, stage cover versions, jam together and of course spontaneously create new interpretations.
