Guitar Manufacturer to Host Ultimate Guitar Festival for Guitarists and Music Lovers
(STEVENSVILLE, MD) July 19, 2019 – PRS Guitars is proud to announce their “Experience PRS 2020” open house and concert event. In addition to being billed as the Ultimate Guitar Festival for Guitarists and Music Lovers, Experience PRS 2020 will also serve as a celebration of PRS Guitars’ 35th Anniversary. Scheduled for May 8th and 9th, 2020, Experience PRS will be held at the PRS factory in Stevensville, Maryland and will bring together celebrated PRS artists, dealers and international distributors, customers and enthusiasts, and worldwide press for two days of concerts, education, factory tours, and fun. The event, which will be PRS’s tenth Experience event, debuted in 2007 with an attendance of around 800 people. The 2020 event is expected to attract close to 3,500 attendees from all over the globe.
As part of the two-day celebration, PRS will open up its doors with an exciting and interactive schedule including factory tours, star-studded concerts, artist clinics and panels, product demonstrations, hands-on opportunities (including staining your own piece of curly maple to take home), and a test drive tent where you can try all the latest PRS gear. With an incredible selection of PRS instruments and amplifiers on display, Experience has also become a destination event for players to pick their next PRS guitar or amplifier. Recognizing this, PRS will build several unique guitars and amplifiers for the 2020 event - details of which will be announced at a later date.
“I’m honored that for 35 years, guitar players and guitar lovers across the globe have helped us build a strong culture dedicated to making the best guitars possible,” stated Paul Reed Smith, PRS Guitars founder and Managing General Partner. “To open our doors and throw a great party is our way of saying thank you for both believing in our craftmanship and for your support.”
“Experience PRS 2020 coincides with our 35th year in business, and I can definitely say that the passion and creativity in this place are beyond exceptional. We are excited to have the opportunity to (once again) open our factory to our friends and family and share our love of guitar building while also providing the opportunity to meet some of the talented people that make PRS. With food and beer trucks, world-class artists on multiple stages, opportunities to jam with professional musicians, and an astounding array of PRS guitars on display, I think it is fair to say that this is one event you shouldn’t miss,” stated PRS Director of Sales, Jim Cullen.
