London Drum Show 2017 - November 11 & 12 The line-up, the masterclasses & education artists London Drum Show 2017 - November 11 & 12 Next week, on November 11 and 12, the London Drum Show 2017 will take place at the Olympia in London. Like every year, eight artists will perform on the Main Stage and six on the Masterclass and Education stages. And just like every year the names are impressive: The Smashing Pumpkins' Jimmy Chamberlin, Kaz Rodriguez (photo), Mel Gaynor, Aaron Spears and Steve White are among the clinicians and tutors. Check the full program plus extra activities below, and click yourself to the LDS tickets site, while there are still a few tickets left.

The tickets are available directly on the website of the London Drum Show. There is limited seating in the auditorium so additional tickets are on sale for £5 in advance as each artist is announced. Also, the drum show gives tickets away for free an hour before each performance. These tickets are first come first served.
