One of Germany’s biggest traditional fairs for Electronic Dance Music and DJ-culture has been cancelled tonight. The annual „DJ & Producer Meeting“ (or „DJMeeting“ as it was called over the years) has been an institution for 24 years, happening traditionally in May and for the last 2 years at the Congress Center of the Westfalenhallen in Dortmund. Organizer Caba Kroll published a press release tonight, giving reasons for this surprise decision:
„Several things happened this year in my private and business life that led to my decision which is everything else but easy. I can’t continue this event in the same format that I did in the last 24 years. There’s no space left due to these negative and positive developments in my private and business life to organize this fair with all it’s various details professionally and with all my possibilities like I did in the past 24 years.
I have to cancel the planned DJ & Producer Meeting 2014 and hope for your understanding on this decision.“
Caba Kroll also declared that the fair might go on as a different format: „I’m in negotiations with the Frankfurter Messe to continue the DJ & Producer Meeting as a network platform. There are several workshops planned and our platform „GET YOUR RECORD DEAL“ should be given another chance to establish. I’m sure to continue the DJ & Producer Meeting with this ‘new’ format.“
