What is PASIC?

PASIC stands for the Percussive Arts Society International Convention, and it's the single largest percussion event in the world. Drawing thousands of percussionists together each year from across the globe, PASIC is a four-day drumming wonderland that takes place in the late Fall. The 2016 convention is held on November 9-12 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The entire convention is filled to the brim with all sorts of different events, from clinics and panel discussions to contests and concerts. No matter what kind of percussion you like, there's always so much stuff going on that there's literally not enough time in the day to catch it all.

Everybody also spends some time wandering around the the International Drum and Percussion Expo, which is like the percussion version of the Pure Imagination scene from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. It's the only chance all year to test out percussion gear for most people, and for many it's the best time to buy all of their new instruments and gear.

Everyone remembers their first PASIC fondly; it's a life-changing experience. Seeing and hearing the full culmination of the best things happening in percussion worldwide is both inspiring and refreshing.
