The inaugural Sydney Drum and Percussion Show will be held on Saturday May 27 and Sunday May 28, taking over the Rosehill Gardens Pavilion as Australia’s biggest trade show for percussive instruments.
Taking its cues from the Melbourne Guitar Show, the event is comprised of pop-up stalls, performances, clinics and demonstrations from the most talented drummers and percussionists in the country.
The show is designed to be a hands on experience, with attendees encouraged to take an part in trying out many of the new and exciting products on display. Far from a formal industry event, the program is designed to be of interest to novices and professionals alike, with several major brands taking part, as well as the opportunity to see some instruments and names that might be less familiar.
There will be special deals running throughout the weekend, so attendees will have some rare opportunities to purchase some new bits of gear and watch artists from a range of genres and backgrounds demonstrating the instruments on display.
“We are excited to showcase our industry’s products and the wealth of local talent that Sydney and Australia has to offer,” said Rob Walker, the CEO of the Australian Music Association. “We seek to grow our drum and percussion community, educate and entertain.”
The Sydney Drum & Percussion Show will take place on Saturday May27 - Sunday May 28 at the Rosehill Garden Pavilion, Sydney. For more information head to australianmusic.asn.au.
