RESUME
From 2000-2005 the event took place in Steinsel at the Centre de Loisirsbetter known as “Al Basketballs Hal”.The first year the event was launched as Gregg Bissonette was on a workshop tour throughout Europe. MAPEX Drums requested Al Ginter –Director of AL GINTER PERCUSSION - if the drum shop would be interested in organizing a workshop for its customers. Right from the start this event turned out to become a successful story and attracted more and more people year after year.Today, we confirm an attendance of around 600 drum fanatics

 

In 2006, the event took place at the
meanwhile famous ROCKHAL at Esch/
Belval. The Club, the small venue at
the Rockhal, is ideal for medium-
scale concerts and new artistic currents, the most diverse and innovative art forms, experimentation and the search for effects increasing sound, image and movement, and the production of various shows.
