Rhythm announces new media partnership with Planet Rock


Rhythm is delighted to announce a partnership with Planet Rock, the UK’s largest and multiple award-winning classic rock digital radio station, owned by Bauer Media. Planet Rock, with a significant investment from Rhythm, will create exciting content to promote the Rhythm Grand Slam 2020 event at Wembley Stadium…

Planet Rock’s incredibly talented community of DJs, including rock legends Alice Cooper and Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, also includes seasoned rock drummers, and the team at Rhythm is very excited about the prospect of this innovative collaboration.

The partnership will see content around drumming promoted across Planet Rock throughout the next 12 months as well as advertising for the Grand Slam.

“This is an important part of Rhythm’s mission to promote drumming in the UK and the drum industry as a whole,” explained Louise King, Rhythm magazine editorial director.

“We want to grow the market, supporting drummers and brands and encouraging future drummers to pick up sticks. This is an extremely exciting time for the UK drum industry.”

“With Planet Rock signing on as a main partner for the Rhythm Grand Slam,” added Rob Last, Rhythm magazine publisher and Lifestyle Media House director, “not only does this mean the show will have a massive boost around additional wide-reaching promotional opportunities, but it also opens up new channels for companies wanting to get involved.”

The Rhythm Grand Slam, which is taking place in London at Wembley Stadium over the weekend of 7-8 November next year, will be an incredible event for drummers, music enthusiasts and brands alike – with:

  • Branded breakout rooms for the industry to host business sessions
  • A trade & demo floor
  • Knowledge workshops & seminars
  • Meet & greets and play-alongs with professional drummers
  • Live performances by some of today’s drum legends
  • VIP-only bar & lounge area
  • Rhythm’s Inaugural Hall of Fame awards ceremony
  • And much more to be announced soon!

Now more than ever, the Rhythm Grand Slam event is set to be a huge success. Contact Rob Last to discuss how you can be part of it by sponsoring the event or booking a stand or breakout room.
