Melbourne Guitar Show 2023: An event you won’t want to miss

Words by Mixdown Staff

The Melbourne Guitar Show is back!

Happening on March 4 and 5 at the Caulfield Race Course, it’s the event’s first time back in three years, so guitar fanatics will surely be itching to get their hands on some new equipment. 

If you’re in the market for some new gear or a gift these holidays for the axe-head in your life, you won’t want to skip past this.

Keep up to date with the latest industry news here.

Featuring all kinds of retailers from the big boys to the boutiques, the expo gives guests the opportunity to try before they buy, so they can make sure the sound, feel, and general vibe of their new instrument is just perfect. 

There are over 50 exhibitors expected to show their wares, so the selection of acoustics, electrics, and electro-acoustics will beat heading down to your local music shop by a mile. There will be guitars, of course, but all the fixings as well – effects pedals, amps, capos, straps, and a host of other quirky toys. 

But it’s not just a place to shop. The Melbourne Guitar Show is a gathering of nearly 5,000 of the city’s most dedicated musos, so it’s a great place to meet new people who share the love of the craft. There will also be information sessions and seminars for those interested in hearing about all the ins and outs of their favourite instrument.

And what would a guitar expo be without live music? Musicians of all types will take to the stage, gracing event-goers with blues, metal, jazz fusion, classical, and good-old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. 

Presented by Australian Musician with the support of Marsh Entertainment, the Melbourne Guitar Show is gearing up to be one of the music industry’s most exciting pop-up events.
