another meinl drum festival is over and from what i heard from many of our guests, it has been the best one so far. i totally agree. the last two festival days were among the absolute highlights of my 22 years working for meinl.

we have had visitors from 20 countries (hungary, poland, czech republic, estland, latvia, russia, sweden, england, wales, ireland, netherlands, belgium, luxemburg, france, spain, italy, usa, the philippines, austria and germany). some of them have spent two days in the car driving to our festival, and then another two days to get back home again. that is just amazing.

on behalf of the entire company i say THANK YOU to my team and our awesome performing artists, and most of all i THANK YOU everyone who took the time to attend the 2012 meinl drum festival in gutenstetten. it means the world to us.

the 2013 meinl drum festival will be held in china, and hopefully in 2014 back in gutenstetten again.

here are just a few fotos. you can check out many more on our facebook "meinldrumfestival" fanpage.

be safe out there.
