2016 Upcoming Shows

The autumn will come and tell us about the instruments which have become the true attention getters of the biggest festivals and expositions held all over the world in 2016. It will also introduce us to the new devices of the upcoming venues and events which might be of synth lovers concern – thanks to the top level organization and careful managers who’re really fond of music these small but proud gatherings keep attracting us and sometimes surprise as much as the major festival year-openers.

Despite the fact that such important music venues as MESSE, NAMM and Superbooth have already finished, we’re still waiting for those off the beaten track meetings which will introduce us to the instruments we might have missed scrolling through the news feed – 2016 is not over yet!

Machines in Music

Machines in Music is a 2-day modular synthesizers exposition and it will take place in New York 8-9 October. Last year more than 1000 newcomers and professionals were welcomed to the meeting – they had a chance to gain some practical experience getting familiar to the modular world represented by 24 developers. The event is a perfect opportunity to meet musicians, who also take part in live performances organized by MiM, and module designers.

The show will include such brands as Synthesis Technology, Steady State Fate, Mannequins, Audio Damage, Copper Traces, Bastl, WMD, Hexinverter and others.

A-Synth Fest

A-Synth is dedicated to analog sound and, well, pretty much to anything which is analog. For example, this year the special attention will be paid to the British label Ghost Box Records. The annual festival will be accompanied by movies, live performances, DJ sets and any kind of visual aids. The event will take place from 30 September to 1 October and will invite such musicians as Caterina Barbieri (Italy), Nite Jewel (USA), Ventil (Germany), Group A (Japan), Blanck Mass (UK) and others who prefer to compose and perform using natural analog signal.

On the 1st of October there’s going to be an event which is equally interested in analog and digital modular synthesizers. The British SynthFest organized by Sound on Sound magazine unlike those major shows and huge festivals announcing only top products gives a chance to the newcomers and little-known manufacturers to demonstrate their instruments and prove them worthy of your recognition. There will be a zone created where anyone registered in advance would be able to perform featuring their own instruments showing the skills and various ways of how their functions can be used. The event managers will offer you to become a participant of some practical and theoretical workshops which are going to bring beginners closer to the modular concept helping them to explore the details of the British electronic musicians history.

SynthFest UK

The exposition will be represented by such companies as AJH Synth, Analogue Solutions, Arturia, Eventide, Genelec, GForce, Lamond Design, Modal Electronics, Moog, Patchblocks, Rebel Technology, Rubadub Music & Technology, Soulsby Synthesizers, Soundgas, Steinberg, Studio Electronics, Thonk – DIY Synthesizer Kits and Yamaha.
