Knobcon The 13th Part II: The Final Friday

Questionably named Synth-Fest happens again      30/08/13
Knobcon The 13th Part II: The Final Friday


Ok, I'm gonna try *real* hard to refrain from any schoolboy type remarks, and merely quote from the webpage linked below...

What is Knobcon?

Knobcon is a one-of-a-kind synthesizer convention now in it's second year. Complete with performances, workshops and vendors, Knobcon allows for a fully immersive experience. Attendees can get their hands on an incredible amount of equipment and talk directly with designers of some of today's most innovative synthesizer products.

Held just outside Chicago, Ill., at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Schaumburg, enthusiasts travel from all parts of North America to attend this yearly event. Direct access to all major forms of transportation make this an easy destination for those traveling.

Who should attend?

If you are interested in electronic-based or experimental music and the tools used to create it, this is the place for you. The diversity and passion of those at knobcon make it enjoyable for all experience levels.

The fun starts Friday evening at the reception featuring gear-centric performances and a cash bar. Doors open at 7pm and continues to around midnight. Saturday is the main event with a wall-to-wall synth meet and marketplace. There is also a full day workshops where you can learn a thing or two.

 

Phew, made it  :-]
