Actually a better date for me than the usual choices- at the least I hope to attend, but perhaps more will be possible...

Thanks for the update.

What about other States? Which would be much cheaper.

Well, a hole in the middle of nowhere might be exceedingly cheap, but who would want to go there?

I'm sure there is other non-hole in the wall places! plus the mid United States may bring a bigger crowd.

Really, if it was not in or near San Francisco it wouldn't be "The Burning Amp Festival" would it?
Mark, Charlie, and others have worked very hard and harnessed the unique array of talent and enthusiasm for DIY audio to create a truly wonderful gathering.
However, there are similar meetings around the country. Just look in the "Clubs and Events" forum. I'm certain that you could find sufficient enthusiasm and interest in Texas to create your own unique DIY meet.

Well, don't think I'm being all that snobbish - I would call my own home town (San Jose), a hole in the middle of nowhere even though it has almost a million population and is only a hour's drive from SF. Shifting the BA locale south to here (SJ) from SF would probably lose us almost all our heavy hitters, and most casual participants to boot. There's as much a lack of suitable venues here as in SF, probably almost as expensive, too.

I've thought of doing a smallish interim meeting for Silicon Valley locals, but don't know of a suitable venue that would have the small to medium size rooms needed. Lotsa halls/auditoriums that just won't cut it. It's not a wedding or a banquet, after all...

BTW, if you think there is traction for a similar event elsewhere in the US, go for it.

Not really sure about a bigger or at least better crowd elsewhere. People have come to the show and told me "take this concept on the road and it'd be huge!" I wonder though. Being nestled here in the Bay Area area spanning Silicon Valley to SF to Marin County and drifting over towards Sacramento is a great place to find music geeks and geeks of all sorts, some who's heyday was over 40 years ago, interacting with digital design and programmer types- that's a pretty special place! Plus we all live or lived around here, and don't really want to travel too far.
