The Dallas International Guitar Festival and MusicFest 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.

At the show attendees can listen to the best local and regional bands at MusicFest's indoor and outdoor stages, including the winners of the Texas 10 Under 20 contest. This Show of Shows will feature 400 booths, exhibits and clinics, and live concert performances on three stages. More than 20,000 people attended last year's event at Dallas Market Hall, with over $3 million of instruments and memorabilia trading hands. For more information, visit the website at
