The second International Meinl Drum Festival took place on July 13th at the Teatro Metropolitan in Mexico City. More than 1500 drum enthusiasts from all over Mexico attended Meinl's second international Drum Festival and enjoyed worldclass drum performances of the participating artists. The Meinl company provided us with some higlight photographs of the artists performing at the IMDF 2011.
A wide assortment of Meinl Cymbals and Percussion Instruments were on display ready to be tested and official Meinl Merchandise was on sale too. After 8hrs of drumming, the day ended with a long signing session hosted by all artists until every visitor had the chance to shake-hand and taking a photo with his favourite Meinl artist.
