Frankfurt’s Musikmesse has announced the first list of artists for the Drum Camp and Guitar Camp sections, which are set to be major features at next year’s show as it slides ever closer to a public format.
Participants will be Jen Majura (Evanescence), Jost Nickel (Jan Delay), Alex Landenburg (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody, ex-Axxis) and blues and rock guitarist Dennis Hormes. Taking part as special guest in a one-off performance will be Grammy award winner Steve Stevens (Billy Idol, Michael Jackson). Additionally, Mike Johnston, will hold masterclasses at the ‘Drum College’.
The show’s organisers say: ‘Drum Camp and Guitar Camp are part of the new Musikmesse brandworld concept that combines product presentations, brand training and entertainment in attractive special areas. The Musikmesse Drums and Guitar brand worlds include not only the Camps but also Brand Areas (exhibition space for prestigious brands), Colleges (workshops and masterclasses) and Academies (instrument demonstrations with the focus on retailers and distributors).’
