The countdown is almost over!

So, tomorrow sees the first day of the London International Music Show at the Excel Centre, Docklands, and Rhythm will be there with to bring you all the coverage from the event, as it happens!

For the latest news and updates keep your browser locked on the Rhythm Blog, plus the dedicated Musicradar LIMS blog. Remember, if you see any of the Rhythm team at the show (we'll be the ones in the funky new Rhythm t-shirts), be sure to come and say hi.

Of course, that's not the only event taking place this weekend. The Download festival kicks off on Friday at Donington Park for three days of metal mayhem. We'll be there too, interviewing the hottest drummers and bringing you all the action from the fest. We'll be uploading video diaries, messages from the stars and blogging all the backstage shenanigans.

We'll also be bringing you up-to-the-minute news and view from both events from the Rhythm Twitter page. If you're not following us yet, now would be the perfect time to get on board.

If you're staying in this weekend don't worry. Sit back, relax, and let us do the work for you!
