Line-up change for Meinl Drum Festival

Meinl Drum Festival, which will be spanning the days of 6 and 7 September in Gutenstetten, Germany, has announced alterations to the line-up due to the unfortunate unavailability of Thomas Lang.

"Due to unforeseen changes in my touring and travel schedule in September this year, unfortunately I am not able to perform at the Meinl Drum Festival," said Lang. He recorded the statement in a video message. Although most of the recording is in German, Lang also makes an apology for being unable to attend in English - and while you wait for that you can watch him in a speedboat and talking about sausages. No kidding.

As always, however, Meinl promises a cracking show. Selected to play in place of Thomas Lang are Johnny Rabb (Biodiesel, USSA) and Daniel Svensson (In Flames). Also appearing is a very special performer, vaudeville artist Fernando, who presents his show ‘Juggling On Drums´. The first day will also see masterclasses from Benny Greb and Jost Nickel, while the second day is filled with performances from drum legends.
