In agreement with the authorities, the fair management has come to the conclusion that MUSIC AUSTRIA 2020 will not be possible as usual and will therefore be postponed to 2021. Over the last two decades, MUSIC AUSTRIA has developed into the leading trade fair for the music industry in Austria and Bavaria.

An essential part of MUSIC AUSTRIA is the participation and trying out of instruments as well as a variety of competitions and workshops for children, advanced players up to professionals. Trying out musical instruments, especially wind instruments, as well as holding large parts of the supporting programme would not be possible under the current circumstances.

The serious restrictions would have meant an incalculable economic and organisational risk for both exhibitors and the exhibition management.

MUSIC AUSTRIA is therefore postponed to 27 – 30 May 2021.
