Crazy Dave's Music Experience is a free, interactive "rock star" exhibit. Fans can expect to get hands-on interaction with tons of musical equipment, much of which is used by their favorite artists performing on stage at the show.

Visitors to Crazy Dave's Music Experience will have the chance to test the latest music equipment from companies including: CAD, Chauvet, CHAUVET® DJ, Dunlop Manufacturing (MXR, Dunlop, Cry Baby, Way Huge), ESP Guitars, Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (Jackson, Charvel, EVH), Hercules, Ibanez, Korg (Vox, Blackstar), Moog, PRS Guitars, and Yamaha & Steinberg.

Each musical product manufacturer in attendance will have representatives on hand to share the brand's story, answer questions, and in some cases even give away merch or make impromptu recordings. There will be contests with some great prizes, and models of equipment on display will be available at special, discounted prices with free shipping from Crazy Dave's. Most of the instruments for sale onsite also include a VIP ticket upgrade. Crazy Dave's Music Experience will also host various artist appearances and signings.

In addition to the individual music equipment areas, the Yamaha & Steinberg Sound Lab will offer musicians the chance to instantly become part of a real recording session using Yamaha guitars, basses, THR amps, and keyboards. Performances will be recorded on the new Steinberg UR44 audio interface using Cubase 7.5 studio software for incredible professional sound. Performances will also be captured live on video with the mix directly from Cubase and then immediately uploaded to the Steinberg Facebook page. Once the videos are up on Facebook, people can "Like" their favorite videos and vote for their friends. The video with the most "Likes" will be broadcast on all the Steinberg U.S. social media outlets the following week.

"We are excited to keep growing the festival experience with everyone over at Crazy Dave's Music," says Clay Busch, Head of Marketing for Danny Wimmer Presents. "With public education and music programs losing government funding annually, it's our responsibility to support creative artists and give them an outlet to learn, create and discover music with their favorite brands, rock stars and festivals."
