Frequently Asked Questions

Keeping our attendance fees reasonable is our first priority. Keeping our sanity is our second priority. Managing single day passes would just require too much staff, and would ultimately make the fees higher for everyone. We feel that the ticket price still represents a great value, even for a single day.

Registering for Knobcon online is the fastest/easiest way to secure your admission to the event. Online forms will go down a few days before the event, however you will be able to walk in off the street and attend, the only deadline is the end of the show!

You bet! This is not just a trade show, it's a synth meet too!  Pay the same table fee and bring any gear you want to display or even sell!

See also the Exhibitors FAQ.

We understand that not everyone travels alone, and that travel partners, while they might understand our hobby, aren't interested in spending all day staring at knobs, jacks and keys. At the same time you want to share the event with them during the performances and maybe even take in the Knobcon Banquet. This is not a problem, your guest may join you at the reception/performances for free and/or attend banquet only at regular price. 

How it works
Register yourself as normal including t-shirts/banquet etc.  When you check-in at the event, you may request a special one-night pass for your guest at no charge. If you'd like for your guest to accompany you to the banquet, you may purchase a banquet-only pass for them at that time as well. These passes will not allow them into the exhibit halls or workshop rooms.

Exhibits are open to the public beginning on Saturday, Sept 9 from 10AM to 6PM and again on Sunday, Sept 10 from 10AM to 5PM.

Feedback from previous Knobcons

As expected, a spectacular event

Learned a lot, laughed a ton, listened to good music, met great people and bought too much new gear. I have no complaints at all!


The whole thing was extremely enjoyable

I made more friends last weekend than I have in years that are in to the same stuff as me. Cheers to everyone involved in planning it!


Had a great time!

Even though I did not know anyone there, I was made to feel welcome and part of the gang.


Thanks for the awesome time everyone!

I saw tons of amazing things for the first time and met tons of cool people, not a bad one in the bunch!


Had a great time!

Learned a lot about modular synths and other gear. Enjoyed the "low-key" relaxed environment and the Knobcon staffers were helpful and very professional. Hope to make it back next year.


Knobcon was amazing!

Loved getting to try out the new and old gear. Everyone there was super cool, and I will definitely be back next year.
