Organizers of Synthplex 2021 have announced that, in the face of the resurgence of the COVID-19 virus and changing recommendations and restrictions from health authorities and local government, Synthplex, the Burbank-based electronic music convention, has been rescheduled from autumn 2021 to October 27 – 30, 2022:

Due to CDC updates, restrictions, and the rapid spread of the Delta, Gamma, and Lambda variants, Synthplex is moving to October 27-30, 2022.

In order to have the hands-on, face-to-face, interactive experience that we all expect from Synthplex, Synthplex has acknowledged the concern of its amazing exhibitors, presenters, and artists in choosing to move to a safer time.

Together, we will wait out this pandemic and gather for an even more illuminating Synthplex in 2022. Your commitment and support are incredibly appreciated, and we look forward to joining with you in the safest possible experience for all involved.

Roger Linn & Dave Smith ham it up at Synthplex 2019

Synthplex is a relatively new synth event that combines some of the best features of Superbooth, Knobcon & the NAMM Show.

The inaugural event, Synthplex 2019, featured a trade show, vintage gear, sessions led by a “who’s who” of synthesis, live performances, a keynote by Tom Holkenborg (Junkie XL), a synth banquet and more.

The announcement comes in the context of surging infection rates, record hospitalizations and rising deaths.
