The ultimate weekend for guitarists and bassists is this weekend. If you need any more persuading to go along, how about inspiring artists, vintage and rare gear, mini gigs, the guitarist of the year live finals and more!
Performances from guitar & bass legends and virtuosos Devin Townsend, Nick Beggs, Eric Gales, John Patitucci, Ariane Cap, Smith & Brewer, Lari Basilio, Cody Wright, Ciro Manna & Lorenzo Feliciati, Seven Decades and a Q&A with Paul Gilbert are set to inspire and delight!
Get ready to drool over and try out to your heart’s content incredible gear from the best and biggest names in the business. From top brands like Fender, Martin, Blackstar, Faith, Peavey, Marshall, Ibanez, Ernie Ball and Orange, through to independent brands you might never have discovered at your local music shop.
Improve your Groove
Attend masterclasses and workshops on a huge range of topics – whatever your level we all have something to learn! Lead by experts from Justin Sandercoe and Andy Guitar to Steve Lawson and Phil Mann, they will cover everything from Blues jamming to surviving as a musician on the road to breathing new life into your playing.
Guitarist of the Year Finals
You can watch the exciting live finals of the Guitarist, Acoustic Guitarist, Young Guitarist and Bassist of the year competitions! Powered by the likes of Ernie Ball, Takamine, Orange and PRS Guitars, they will be judged by a star panel, while the finalists battle it out to be crowned 2019 champion then and there on stage.
Vintage and Rare Gear
Get up close and personal with golden old gear from Seven Decades in the Vintage Zone! The 9-piece band will also perform live with George Harrison’s iconic Futurama guitar on both Saturday and Sunday at the show – these performances are not to be missed, and an iconic moment as the guitar is played for the first time since 1961.
Mini Gigs and More
We’re setting the tone for an amazing show experience by giving you great mini performances before you’ve even entered the event. Keep an eye out for details on our exclusive after hours event on Saturday night too – coming soon!
