The 2016 Maui Steel Guitar Festival will be held on April 15-17, 2016 at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. The Hawaiian Steel Guitar Camp will again be held in the days immediately preceding the festival. The camp provides an opportunity for participants to learn all about and how to play the Hawaiian Steel Guitar (no experience required!) then enjoy the 3-day festival of Hawaiian Steel Guitar music.
This year's Friday and Saturday Kanikapilas will be UNPLUGGED. A sound system won't be available so participants need to bring their own portable amplifiers if their instrument requires amplification.
