Brooklyn Synth Expo Set for June 8 - 9

6th Brooklyn Synth Expo - 80+ builders & 500+ devices in a room, coming up on June 8-9

"Brooklyn, NYC - One of the first synth gatherings of its kind, and the only one 100% free to the public, the Brooklyn Synth Expo is an in-the-headphones show of electronic instrument that was launched in 2014, three years after its sister event, the Stompbox Exhibit.

After noticing a growing affinity between the synth and guitar pedal formats, the organizers in 2018 decided to unify them under a big Synth and Pedal Expo, which attracted a record number of 2,500 visitors, making it one of the best-attended synth events in the US.

This year's event, scheduled for June 8-9 will feature for the first time also a series of presentations and workshops in an adjacent room.

While most expos of this kind are hosted in far-flung hotels or convention centers, the Brooklyn Synth Expo is located close to where musicians live, and because of this feels very much like an underground party: this year's event will be hosted in a large (for NYC standards) video facility in Bushwick, the industrial-turned-cool neighborhood many local musicians call home.

This year's show features 80+ vendors and over 500 devices to play with, with a growing presence of Eurorack and Virtual Synth manufacturers.

As usual, there will be plenty of deals on synth and pedals, and also the opportunity to sell and exchange synths through the presence of legendary New Jersey synth store Three Wave Music.

The event is free but requires RSVP, all info can be found here."
