Organiser, Neil Golding of Gold Media and Events, also the founder of The UK Drum Show, which takes place at the same venue this September, has said, ” since our announcement just a few weeks ago, and from the comments observed across social media and independent forums, there has, and always will be the desire for a dedicated event, just for bass players.” Golding, who originally launched the London Bass Guitar Show over a decade ago is excited to launch and reinstate an event for bass players in the UK, and hopes like the audience for their drum event, it attracts bass players from around the world to the biggest bass event in the UK.
