Loop is three days of performances, talks, and interactive workshops aimed at exchanging ideas at the cutting edge of music, technology, and creative practice. Bringing together artists, technologists, educators, and other creative thinkers, Loop is a collective exploration of what it is to make music today and what it could be tomorrow.
Loop 2020 will be centered around Silent Green Kulturquartier (pictured) 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.
Since its founding in 2015, Loop has brought together musicians and producers from around the world for three days of talks, performances and hands-on workshops on music, technology and creative practice. Among other topics, Loop attendees can expect discussions around music and self-expression, thinking beyond the constraints of hardware and software, and creating music against the status quo.
Overlap with Superbooth? The upcoming 2020 edition of Loop falls on the same weekend as Superbooth, presenting music makers with an opportunity to experience two music events in one visit to Berlin. Organizers are working together closely to ensure that attendees can experience the best of both events.

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).
