Benny Greb, Kaz Rodriguez, Will Calhoun and Michael Schack will beat through the Benelux this weekend with an international team of star stunning names. For the first time, the festival will be a two-day event happening in Antwerp on October 1, and The Hague on October 2nd.
Herfstfest Drum Festival has been growing in size and names with each edition. On this first Benelux Drum Festival the main stage artists will be sharing the stages with Golden Earring's Radar Love drummer Cesar Zuiderwijk and many artists from Belgium and The Netherlands, and - of course - with Armin van Buuren and Vandenberg drummer Koen Herfst himself.
Make sure to check out the artists and videos below. The complete timetables are included as well.

Ten 1-minute Questions with Benny Greb

Will Calhoun Dom Famularo announced Will Calhoun at the 2009 Adams Drummersfestival with the statement: "He's not only going to change the way you think. But probably going to change the way you feel."
And as we [drummerszone] wrote about his clinic: "Undeniable true. Who might expect Calhoun plays solo just like he does with Living Colour is up for a big surprise. Straight from African traditions, Jazz, Bop and Soul, Calhoun gives an ongoing performance of over 40 minutes dynamic violence in which his thematic structures are almost visible."
