Music Live Celebrates 10th Anniversary in 2009

Music Live 2009 celebrates its tenth anniversary next month at Birmingham NEC.

The event takes place at the NEC, Birmingham from Friday 6th until Sunday 8th November and for the past decade it's been the UK's favourite music-making event, inspiring and educating musicians in their thousands.

Music Live is the biggest exhibition of musical equipment and instruments in the UK. The show attracts music junkies on all different levels; from those who are playing professionally through to wannabe rock stars!

Every year there’s a fantastic showing of the latest and greatest guitars, drums, synths, amps, recording gear and software from the world's best-known brands, as well as educational advice and demonstrations throughout the whole show.

Exciting live performances are also part of the Music Live experience, which regularly pulls in crowds over 22,000 strong.

This year acoustic guitar wizard and YouTube phenomenon Erik Mongrain, new UK bands Cars on Fire and They Fell From The Sky and Ocean Colour Scene’s Damon Minchella are all scheduled for Live Stage shows and masterclasses.

On Sunday, November 8, the Live Stage is given over to some of the country’s finest tribute bands, including Iron Maiden tribute Hi-On Maiden who will be creating the classic 1988 Donnington Monsters of Rock bill.

This year the show also ‘hosts’ the Hellfire Festival, taking place on the Music Live stage each evening and featuring classic names alongside hot new talent, from Saxon and Anvil to Sylosis and Blakfish.

Joint discounted tickets for both Music Live and Hellfire are available to allow access to both events.
