I spend a lot of time online looking at reviews and demos of stuff like synthesizers/drumcomputers/effect pedals etc. and I kindof want to try all of them, as even the greatest review can at best only approximate how it might be to actually use the thing (and being on a limited budget I cant just buy everything interesting that I come across).
So Im wondering if anyone knows of some good places to go play around with electronic music gear?
Like eg. conferences , festivals, showcases etc.
Im based in Netherlands, and as far as I know we have only the dutch modular fest in Rotterdam, which is interesting enough, but I’m not a modular guy.
If you guys know some good things like this around Europe I would be very happy to know about them!
Also if you know some good music stores to try things out in Netherlands, Sweden or Germany I would be happy to know about them too.
