Fort Wayne-based Sweetwater Sound Inc. will Friday kick off its annual GearFest. The two-day event, which is expected to draw 15,000 people to the Sweetwater campus, will include an equipment expo, entertainment events, a musicians’ flea market, and musical demonstrations.
The event is free and open to the public. Sweetwater says attendees will also be able to see workshops hosted by music producers and performers on five stages.
"GearFest is unique in being free and open to musicians and audio enthusiasts, unlike most trade shows, which are held for manufacturers and retailers," said Chuck Surack, founder and president of Sweetwater. "We’re particularly proud that GearFest has such a reputation that it is now bringing people from literally all over the world to Sweetwater’s campus in Fort Wayne."
