as most of you know I went to the Musikmesse Frankfurt yesterday.
And well, I'm back home with tons of impressions for you.
I actually have to split the post about the Musikmesse into two parts.
Part one, which is this post will be about the main facts and the award show I went to see, including a few artists.
Part two, which will be up tomorrow is going to be about the instruments.
Alright, for those of you who didn't have the chance to visit the Musikmesse yet, let me teach you some really interesting facts. (Watch the journalist in me creep out ;) )
The Musikmesse is the place to be for exhibitors and trade visitors from more than 100 countries. You can find about 30,000 products there and if you want to, check out every single one.
Honestly, "nothing is impossible" is the way to go.
Besides drooling on all the beautiful instruments you can also see music come to life.
Go to one of the many award shows, listen to bands and solo artists during concert times or learn things yourself from the workshops.
You see, there's nothing you can't do. So why don't you come over and visit the Musikmesse next year?
Here are a few impressions:
|You have to ride the shuttle busses to travel the whole location.|
Doing some press work in the press center. That's what I call a concentrated face.
|You'll also meet quite a few people .. ;)|
Now here's something about the award show:
The drums.de award is given out by a jury of experts and also "normal" music fans, like you and me.
I already went to the show last year (yeah, only to see Martin and James) but I was impressed right away.
Here are some pictures:
|Nick Howard winning the award for "best album".|
|First act to perform: the band "museum".|
|Another live act - "Gun".|
At this point I want to thank the staff from the Musikmesse for being nothing but friendly. Especially the supportive Press staff! Big thanks!
I really really hope you enjoyed this post and got a feeling for what I experienced yesterday. Remember, the post about the instruments will be online tomorrow! : )
