Willoughby has confirmed that, along with a full schedule of drum clinics, manufacturers” exhibits and hands-on historical displays, the event will also feature a special appearance by international percussion artist, Pete Lockett, both as a solo clinician and in conjunction with U.S. drumming legend Steve Smith.
