Synthplex, L.A.’s First Synthesizer Festival, to Debut in March

L.A.’s first-ever synthesizer festival promises a four-day event with speakers, workshops, a pop-up synth museum, and Much More

It might just be the synthesizer if there & rsquo one piece of gear synonymous with digital music. Popularized in the 1970s, synthesizers are used by DJs, producers, and composers to create much of the sounds heard in music.

Now, synth fans can pay homage to the tool that is versatile in the premiere of Synthplex, a four-day festival in Los Angeles including speakers, workshops, a memorial and performances.

Several high-profile titles in the synth community are on the bill to talk involving Dave Smith (one of the most recognized MIDI inventors), Chris Meyer, Marc Doty, and festival co-founder/Grammy Award-winning synthesist Michael Lehmann Boddicker.

Although the focus is on all things synthesizer, Synthplex has something for everyone and also a heavy emphasis on education.

Musicians, songwriters, producers, sound designers, and composers make up the bulk of guest speakers and several are set to provide sessions on a variety of music industry topics.  Additionally, over 30 artists of all genres will perform and stream live throughout the weekend on DubLab radio.

But the most exciting areas of the festival for synth heads that are eager are the DIY synthesizer or the chance to play with rare and special synthesizers in the pop-up synth museum. Proceeds from the pop-up synth museum will benefit the Children’s Music Fund, and festival organizers expect to pick a new recipient for donations annually.

Synthplex™ will take place from March 28th – 31st in the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel & Convention Center. More information found on the event website.
