The KNOB New Music Festival is an annual celebration of experimental and unconventional musical disciplines, in the fields of both composition and performance.

November 2 - November 4, 2023
All shows start at 8pm, doors open at 7:30.
Admission each night is by a suggested donation of $10.
The festival is open to all ages, and we invite our audience to bring their own refreshments, but ask that alcohol not be served to minors.
This year's KNOB acronym is Kinetic Nexus Of Bots, and the 2023 artwork "generator" is AI (with adjustments by Patrick Duegaw).
