NEEMFest is a gathering of musicians that use electronic musical instruments and both hardware and software tools to create art in a performance-centric event. This is bigger than your average “synthesizer meet”; this is the philosophy of controllerism and abstract thinking, put into real practice in a peer-based and public environment. Hands-on workshops, seminars, demonstrations, and audio/video technology happen in an informal educational setting where all ages and skill levels are welcome to attend.
NEEM is affiliated with electro-music.com, which was founded by Howard Moscovitz and Greg Waltzer in the early 2000s. NEEMFest 2018 continues this annual festival tradition, now in it’s 15th year, which traditionally happens in the NorthEast quadrant of the USA; three large facilities with space to accomodate performances and workshops have been utilized for NEEM since its conception.
Not only are there constant performances on two stages; there will also be a hands-on “Synthesizer Petting Zoo,” with various rare and odd synthesizers, drum machines, and other pieces of electronic music gear you hadn’t known existed. Please bring your own headphones for the Zoo; iPhone/iPod headsets work well.

I attended the earlier incarnation of this event called Electro-Music NY in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014 hosted by Howard Moscovitz and Greg Waltzer and really enjoyed it. I like the looks of all the changes made as this has evolved to NEEMFest. The new venue looks great and I think the new location in a more populated area with $10 tickets will encourage more of a local audience as well.
I can’t make it out this year so a big thanks to http://radiospiral.net for the stream http://tunein.com/radio/RadioSpiral-s285168/.
