One of the show's special guest drummers this year will be Pete Ray Biggin who is originally from Sheffield and who is now one of Britain's most sought after drummers. Pete also won the Beat 1993 young drummer competition. Pete is now playing with bands like Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Adele, and Incognito.
Also in attendance will be Eric Ward (world class snare drummer) demonstrating with his team of Scottish Pipe Drummers who between them have a wealth of experience from the Pipe Band World.

Finally, Concord Street Noize, the final of the Beat 2008 young drummer competition and an array trade/exhibition stands will ensure the day goes with a bang.
