Bernie Marsden, Don Airey, Jennifer Batten: top international stars to rock together during the ‘Ultimate Jam’ at Musikmesse.
Accompanied by a great backing band under Musical Director Siggi Schwarz, star guests such as Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake, etc.), Don Airey (Deep Purple, etc.), Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, etc.), Pete York (The Spencer Davis Group) as well as exceptional singer Andreas Kümmert and YouTube star Alexandr Misko will ensure music of the highest standard.
Ultimate Jam is part of the ‘Musikmesse Festival 2020’, the five-day music gala that, for the fifth time running, will offer a wide variety of great evening events at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre and in many of Frankfurt’s clubs. Musikmesse visitors can also enjoy numerous programme highlights during the day when musicians of the Ultimate Jam pass on their instrumental skills at workshops and clinics. Thus, on the occasion of the 40th birthday of Musikmesse, Frankfurt will once again be a magnet for all music lovers wanting to expand their musical knowledge and see and hear stars at first hand.
“Musikmesse is more than just a product show. More than ever before, it revolves around experiencing and creating music in all its facets, around unforgettable musical moments, around networking in the scene and around direct contacts between musicians of all ages and legendary artists”, says Wolfgang Weyand, Musikmesse and Musikmesse Festival Director. “We are proud to present spectacular events such as the Ultimate Jam and are delighted that so many big names will be taking part.”
The Ultimate Jam is set to raise the roof of the ‘Festival Arena’ on the first day of Musikmesse 2020 (1 April). The main stage of the fair is big and equipped with ultra-modern event technology. Altogether, there is room for around 2,000 music fans. Under the motto ‘Legends & Icons’, the focus of the songs selected will be on milestones of pop and rock history in which, thanks to their outstanding musicality, the event’s star guests will have also played a role. A glance at the line-up gives more than a hint of the programme diversity to be expected.
Musikmesse visitors and Festival ticket holders can attend the Ultimate Jam, as well as the various workshops and clinics, free of charge as long as places are available. Additionally, there will be a limited number of special tickets giving guaranteed admission.
Frankfurt am Main, 1 to 4 April 2020. The Musikmesse Festival begins a day before, on 31 March.
