MD Announces Lineup for 2008 Festival

A few weeks ago, we reported that MD’s Festival Weekend had gotten a date, and now it seems they’ve gotten the talent to ink to an appearance. According to MD, scheduled to appear so far are:

Simon Phillips & Protocol
Toto/The Who/Jeff Beck
A true giant of rock and fusion drumming, and a revered clinician, Simon Phillips has been enrapturing audiences with his ultra-precise chops for over thirty years.

Gavin Harrison
Porcupine Tree/King Crimson
Gavin Harrison’s head-turning neo-progressive drum work and popular advanced tutorials leave drumming fans enlightened-and amazed.

Todd Sucherman
Styx/Brian Wilson
There are over 6 billion people on this planet. Maybe a half a dozen of them posses the advanced drumming talents of Todd Sucherman.

Dafnis Prieto
Michel Camilo
Dafnis Prieto is one of jazz’s most intriguing drummer/leaders. His taste, technique, and tremendous musicality will leave Festival attendees awestruck.

Derek Roddy
Today Is The Day/Hate Eternal

It will be interesting to see where this goes. So far, Simon Phillips is the only real “A-List” drummer to have signed on.  For more info, check out MD’s full article.
