The 12th annual Burning Amp Festival 2019 will be held Saturday, November 9th (Workshop Day), and Sunday, November 10th (Main Event) at the Firehouse and Building C of the historic Fort Mason Center on the San Francisco waterfront.

Burning Amp is a yearly participatory event for Do-It-Yourself (DIY) audiophiles to show off their projects, learn, network, and share their passion for experimenting with DIY audio gear. Founded in 2007, Burning Amp is an all-volunteer, non-profit audio happening attended by enthusiasts worldwide.

Workshop Day

The Saturday Workshop Day (pre-registration required) will include an Amplifier Build Workshop and a Measurement Workshop. In the Amplifier Build Workshop participants will assemble a preamp/headphone amp, an all-new design from long term patron Nelson Pass. The Measurement Workshop, led by Bob Cordell and Demian Martin, will explore measurements of both amplifiers and loudspeakers.

Nelson Pass

The Sunday main event offers amateur DIY audio projects on display and for audition. Burning Amp’s keynote speakers are always standing-room-only (subject to Fire Dept. regulations) events. This year’s speakers are: Sean Casey, founder of Zu Audio, and Nelson Pass, audio industry legend and DIY icon.

Sunday morning’s Shorter Takes session has three amplifier designers presenting and is also the day Burning Amp participants display and audition their DIY projects.

Hours are: Saturday by Pre-Registration only; Sunday 9 am to 8 pm. A catered Indian buffet lunch will be available on Sunday. Coffee and snacks will be provided both days. Admission is $30, and $20 for those bringing their own DIY audio projects.
