Ableton has opened registration for Loop, to be held in Berlin from April 24 to April 26, 2020. In addition to regular Summit Passes, Ableton is opening the event up to a wider audience by offering 80 Subsidized Passes (registration until October 1). Creators interested in attending the event can register for Summit Passes, Student and Youth Passes, as well as Subsidized Passes on the Loop website.
Loop 2020 will be centred around Silent Green Kulturquartier and adjoining contemporary art spaces Savvy, Ebensperger Rhomberg and Luxoom Lab. This collection of venues covers the grounds of Berlin’s first crematorium, providing a historical setting for forward-thinking artistic practice. Nearby Bonello Studios will complete the Loop 2020 campus.
Loop brings musicians and producers from around the world together for three days of talks, performances and hands-on workshops on music, technology and creative practice. Amongst other topics, attendees can expect discussions around music and self-expression, thinking beyond the constraints of hardware and software, and creating music against the status quo.
This edition of Loop falls on the same weekend as Superbooth, presenting music makers with a unique opportunity to experience two inspiring music events in one visit to Berlin. Organizers are working closely together to ensure attendees can experience the best of both events.
Videos from last year can be revisited at Ableton.com. Some highlights include: Andrew Huang hosting the Start Here sample challenge, which saw 800 tracks submitted by producers from around the world in just 12 hours; acclaimed Argentinian musician Juana Molina talking us through her Amoeba Music haul for What’s In My Bag?; and Ableton Certified Trainer and licensed attorney Abid Hussein’s enlightening presentation on sampling and copyright.
