2014 Dallas International Guitar Festival
The 37th Annual Dallas International Guitar Festival will expand to the Automobile, Centennial and former Women’s Museum buildings at Fair Park, with music performances in all venues throughout the festival.
The Dallas International Guitar Festival is the world's largest and oldest guitar show, blending musicians, fans, collectors and celebrities together into one musical extravaganza. Visitors can buy, sell, trade, or just browse among the thousands upon thousands of new and vintage guitars, basses, amps, banjos, mandolins, straps and strings, effects pedals, keyboards, music memorabilia and more.
More than 60 local, regional and national artists will perform on the festival’s four music stages, including such guitar greats as past festival performers Johnny A, Bugs Henderson, Johnny Hiland, Eric Johnson, Greg Martin, the New Bohemians, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani and many more. This year’s headliners will include Johnny Winters, Like Monroe with B. B. King’s grandson, along with Rick Derringer, George Lynch and Andy Timmons.
The festival features 800 booths and exhibits, where you can rub elbows with guitar legends and up-and-coming artists and get tips from the very best musicians at instructional clinics throughout the show. Also featured again this year is the Unplugged Room, especially for acoustic instruments.
