Young Drummer of the Year
The Young Drummer of the Year competition was put together to give the country’s young drumming talent a national and indeed international platform, which we hope will be the first steps in their musical career.
Since then, the event has seen tremendous growth. It has established itself as an internationally recognised event, attracting an ever increasing number of entries and seeing the very best in terms of drumming talent and recognition from top brands in the drumming world has helped both in terms of popularity and scale of production.
The finals of the competition this year take us to a new home and we are delighted to have been welcomed by Artrix in Bromsgrove on the 3rd February 2019.
In the year following the finals, the winner is kept very busy! Past winners have made numerous TV and radio appearances, as well as support slots for the like of Billy Ward and Thomas Lang, Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez and Stanton Moore and the winner will the UK Drum Show in Manchester and be presented with a Sonor drum kit, a set of Meinl cymbals and a set of Evans drum heads!
Judges for previous finals have included drummers for the likes of Robbie Williams, Adele, One Direction, Kylie Minogue and Pink Floyd to name a few so come and see what the latest breed of young drummers has to offer and maybe be inspired to enter next year and get your career off to a start in the best posible way as the Young Drummer of the Year.
