Just a week after the initial announcement of artists for the 2018 Melbourne Guitar Show, more great guitar players have been added to appear at Caulfield Racecourse on August 4&5. Additions this week include: Dave Leslie (Baby Animals), Brett Garsed (John Farnham, TJ Helmerich), The Weeping Willows, Ed Bates, Espana feat: Matthew Fagan, Bernardo Soler & Dean Gaudion, Adam Miller, Mitch Cairns, Josh Munday, Phisha, Peter Baylor, Craig Newman, Ben Kelly, and Thomas Leeb.

Drawing over 5,500 guitar lovers and enthusiasts to last year’s exhibit, the Melbourne Guitar Show is growing year on year and is gearing up for the biggest event yet. The voice of the Australian music products industry, the Australian Music Association (AMA) will be teaming up with australianmusician.com.au and presenting sponsors Triple M, 3PBS and Aon to present this year’s guitar-centric weekend.

At last year’s MGS, punters not only enjoyed scheduled performances and demos from the awesome artists on the lineup, but also witnessed surprise on-stand appearances from some of Australia’s finest artists, including Ian Moss, Darren Middleton (Powderfinger), Paul Dempsey, Oscar Dawson and Ali Barter. Both the promoters of the show and the exhibitors are constantly wrangling acts right up until the very last minute – and who will be joining the all-star jam this year? Come on down and find out!

Not only will the 2018 MGS provide a hands-on chance to see, hear and play a broad range of the world’s favourite brands, it will also see exhibitors offering great show deals, plus an opportunity to get close to some hand-crafted, locally made instruments and epic guitar and gear collections.

Describing the exciting developments, Rob continues, “Our exhibition welcomes back some big names this year and the learning opportunities are plentiful. If you’re in the market for guitars and gear, great live music from some of the best players, the Melbourne Guitar Show is the place to be.”
