You don’t forget a good music festival. The arena sound, the big lineups, and the energy of thousands of fellow music fans. Each year, PRS teams up with “The Music Experience,” a traveling interactive musical instruments exhibit that visits rock and blues festivals around the country. Being inside The Music Experience tent gives us an opportunity to meet music fans and share our love of great guitars and amps. Here’s a quick recap of this year’s festivals.
