Dragonforce guitarist Herman Li will be the major star appearing during the Guitar Camp sessions at this year’s Musikmesse (5 to 8 April 2017). Possibly reinforcing the view that the show is transforming itself into a public event, Li will be joined by Nico Schliemann (Glasperlenspiel), Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear) and Marco Wriedt (21 Octayne, ex Axxis). All four will perform using their original tour equipment in the ‘Sweat, Blood and Tears Box’ in Hall 11.0 – where visitors can get closer to these music-scene greats than they ever can at a concert, Musikmesse says. Following their performances, the musicians will be ready and willing to sign autographs. There will also be daily master classes and workshops in the Guitar College.
Previously confirmed for the Guitar Camp are: Annihilator front man, Jeff Waters, Evanescence member Jen Majura, blues and rock musician Dennis Hormes and songwriter, studio guitarist and live performer, Bruce Gaitsch from Nashville. meanwhile, Steve Stevens will give a unique performance, specially for the Guitar Camp, on the Saturday (8 April).
