Drummers are being invited to enter a fantastic new competition.

#FUTUREBEAT offers a mouthwatering array of prizes, unique performance opportunities, and maximum exposure for drummers aged 18 years and under.

Partnered by Yamaha Drum Dealers throughout the UK, #FUTUREBEAT is described by George Daniel, drummer for chart-topping rock band, The 1975 as, “a great platform for young drummers that provides a level playing field for showcasing new talent.”

With a Yamaha Live Custom Drum Kit awarded to the overall #FUTUREBEAT winner, professional development from Artist Mentoring Sessions for the Grand Finalists and prizes for all Regional finalists, this is a do-not-miss-opportunity for anyone under the age of 18 who plays drums.

Applications are now invited for #FUTUREBEAT. Simply send in an email with a link to a short video clip of your drumming performance with name, date of birth, address and contact number to: Glasgow futurebeat@drummersonly.co.uk

Judges will be looking for groove, timing, technique, versatility and expression.

The video can be filmed as simply as on your smart phone. Judging will be made on your performance not the production of the video.

From the video submissions, 60 young drummers will be selected to perform live on either a Yamaha Stage Custom or DTX Electronic Drum Kit at 5 Regional Finals that will each showcase 10 drummers.

Yamaha’s Drum Product Marketing Manager Gavin Thomas said: “We believe #FUTUREBEAT could become one of the most important Drum events of the year for many years to come. The UK has a lot of talented and aspiring

drummers and we are giving them the opportunity for exposure in front of many influential industry figures. We hope it can help kick start many careers.”
