Parking and Shuttles

Parking at Angel Stadium is now available for all four days of The 2019 NAMM Show. Spaces are available for $14. This is a cash-only transaction, and overnight parking is not allowed.

The NAMM Shuttle station is located on Katella by the ACC Arena and connects the parking lots to the show. The last shuttle leaves at 10 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 6 pm on Sunday, so plan ahead! View all of the parking and shuttle options.


The Badge Will Call tent has moved, from the Grand Plaza into two different locations: the Anaheim Marriott parking lot and the Arena, off of Katella. There are a number of other sites with various hours, which can be viewed here.

Expanded Campus

This year, we’ve expanded the badged perimeter to include the Grand Plaza, the Arena Plaza and the Palm Courtyard. All attendees entering this area and the convention center will be required to wear their badge.

With safety at the forefront, backpacks, bags, purses and other personal effects will be subject to inspection prior to entry. Be prepared also to show a government-issued ID when entering and exiting the NAMM Campus. Once on the campus, simply wear your badge, and you can flow from site to site freely.

ACC North / Arena Plaza Activations

Featuring the latest in pro audio, ACC North offers a dynamic atmosphere to do business and have fun. In front of the building, take a selfie with the #NAMMShow sign. At 2 pm each show day, visit the Pop-Up Shirt Shop for a free shirt, with live screen-printing!

And, in the Arena Plaza, experience the Earth Harp, with 1,000-foot strings strung to the interior of the ACC. There are four performances on Friday and Saturday: 9:40 am, 11:40 am, 1:40 pm, 3:40 pm.

Grand Plaza Activations

There are a number of exciting new activations located in the Grand Plaza:

Dynaudio will showcase its pop-up recording studio, Unheard, at The 2019 NAMM Show. Built in the hull of two shipping containers, this state-of-the-art studio is half glass, allowing the audience to watch and listen to the bands as they record. This behind-the-scenes look offers the audience an engaging part-concert, part-recording session. With an MC, producer and several sound technicians, the crowd can sit and enjoy the music as they peer into the recording process.

The Grand Plaza will also feature the T Mobile truck, a Harley Davidson bike and a VW van converted into a stage, presented by Palmer.

Yamaha Activations in Marriott

Yamaha Music has teamed up Kelsey Montague, a street mural artist behind the #WhatLiftsYou movement to create a unique display piece that showcases the intersection between music and art. It’s a tribute to artists and musicians who make waves with their passion for creating.

Yamaha also will feature an oversized Ampeg—this one goes to twelve—a Yamaha motorcycle, social-interactive space, Disklavier player piano and a singer-songwriter stage in the Marriott Starbucks.

NAMM U Education Center

The NAMM U Education Center conveniently houses the majority of education sessions at The 2019 NAMM Show. As there are hundreds of groundbreaking sessions to choose from, we invite you to develop a plan through My Show Planner and the NAMM Shows mobile app.
