The list of artists for the Drum Camp at Musikmesse 2017 (5 to 8 April) is complete. Eight international drum stars will give daily performances on their original touring sets in the ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears Box’ – a sound-proof cabin in the middle of Hall 11.0 where visitors can see and hear the musicians close up.
After their performances, all drummers will be available for autographs and to answer questions about their equipment and playing techniques. Four more prominent artists have now announced their participation. They are Karl Brazil (Robbie Williams), Will Hunt (Evanescence), Chris Coleman (Chaka Khan) and Veronika Lukesova (Rock meets Classic, Kiske/Somerville).
Jost Nickel (Jan Delay), Alex Landenburg (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody), Michael Schack (Netsky) and the independent artist Anika Nilles have already announced their participation in the Drum Camp.
Additionally, masterclasses for drum aficionados will be held at the Drum College, in the immediate vicinity of the Drum Camp. Twice a day, star drum coach Mike Johnston will hold training sessions on sophisticated playing techniques. Drum Camp artists Jost Nickel and Anika Nilles will also be holding workshops.
