Are you a musician? Have you always dreamt of becoming a musician? Then enter every musician’s heaven, The Music Gear Expo, over SXSW where an endless amount of instruments are available to test and drool over. Back for its third year, this exhibition features all the newest and best instruments including guitars, amps, keyboards, drums, mics, effects pedals, DJ equipment, and mixing software.
Thanks to Strait Music Company, bands can make emergency pit stops at The Music Gear Expo Store to purchase those very much needed music accessories like cables and drum sticks. So, don’t get caught in a jam and hit up this store if something unexpected happens to your gear – they have you covered. Strait Music professionals will be present to help with equipment repairs as well.
If you ever get too overwhelmed with all the awesome gear on the main floor, then cruise on over to The Music Gear Expo Lounge presented by Klipsch. The lounge will be accessible to those who attend the exposition and is the perfect spot to chill out. Free wi-fi will be available and your drinking needs will be covered over happy hour from 4-5pm.
And get this – we all know how expensive music equipment and gear can be, so The Music Gear Expo is giving all SXSW showcasing bands a chance to win free gear as part of their Gear Package giveaway which contains a guitar, mics, speakers, pedal boards, cables, a synthesizer, software, online classes, and much more! So if you are a showcasing artist and want some new fancy equipment to show off, then we highly suggest you enter this giveaway. What do you have to lose? Well, nothing considering it is free! All you have to do is sign up in the Music Gear Expo between March 14-17 and be present for the drawing at 3PM on March 17th.
All SXSW showcasing bands, registrants from the SXSW Music, Film and Interactive conferences, and the general public are invited to come check out The Music Gear Expo. It will be open on Wednesday 3/14 through Friday 3/16 from 12pm-6pm and on Saturday 3/17 from 12pm-5pm at the Austin Convention Center Exhibit Hall 5.
