I can't say enough about the Experience! Last year was my first one. I ended up meeting tons of great people, seeing amazing artists, and buying new #1 guitars for my wife and I.
And I got homework too! I've been listening to Coletrane's "A Love Supreme" every day at John McLaughlin's suggestion. I can't wait to see what I can learn from this year's event!

Thanks bud.....re the avatar.
I'm looking forward to attending my first. Based on the posts here I'm really psyched.
This year will be my 5th Experience PRS Event and I attend all 3 days as well...It keeps getting better and better each year! Here is video from a few Experience PRS events I have performed (had fun at) at... http://www.youtube.com/user/acaciaentertainment

Some day ... Looking forward to see an European event set up in the future.
"Honey, this year I'm going to the PRS Experience."
"3 days of peace and music."
"Oh, like Woodstock?"
"Yeah, only there are tents and hotels, no mud, and no one will be naked."
"And no drugs, right?"
"Do Crestor, Lopressor and Plavix count as drugs?"
"Then I doubt strongly that anyone will have drugs."
"So what would you do there?"
"Look at guitars, watch guys playing guitars, play guitars myself. Maybe shop."
"You already do that every weekend. Why not just pitch a tent at Northeast Music Center?"
"Because Jack will be at Experience."
"How About Guitar Center then?"
"It's not the same. Plus I want to see my pals."
"You mean the guys like you who don't have lives and spend all their spare time on the PRS Forum?"
"Um...well, we have a lot in common."
"They could all be stalkers and weirdos for all you know."
"That's what I'm hoping for. Kindred spirits."
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken...
That was beautiful Les. I'm not Muslim, but for me I imagine it to be the equivalent of a trip to Mecca. Drove through Kent Island this weekend taking our dogs to the beach, and as we passed I had to tell my wife and kid we were passing the Dream Factory.
I went to the concert at Paul's house in '08. Been to all of the Experiences. See you all in the fall!
I mean, I know how my wife ended up with me - it was revenge!!! Revenge I tell ya!!! And when things are finally squared in the payback area, she's free to go!

That's Hilarious, I asked my wife if she would come. Her answer, was exactly what you said....no way, they could all be stalkers and weirdos for all you know. Looking forward to meeting all you weirdos and stalkers!
Two wallets have been lost that I know of (one was mine). Both were recovered without all the cash that was inside. In both cases, many hundreds of dollars were taken.
That said, you can't let the bad outweigh the good. The Experience draws large crowds of people who know and respect each other but it should still be treated like any other public event.
Bottom line: Have a great time, buy something fun, always check your 6, and help PRS keep an eye on things.
