The high level of the organization and the realization of the last four competitions “DRUMSFEST” were appreciated not only by the judges, sponsors and the festival participants, but the Moscow region Ministry of culture and the administration of the Moscow region. The decision to give to this competition the International status has been already made and the participants of the IV festival know that. As a result of that, at this point the organizational activities are being carried out together with the negotiations with the outstanding foreign musicians and drums teachers who would be able to participate as judges and perform master classes during the festival. Also there are the negotiations carrying out with the leading international companies «MAPEX», «MEINL» и «PAISTE».
At present the consent to participate in judging the nomination “Solo on a drum kit” was given by such outstanding drummers as Damien Schmitt (Germany) and Dom Famularo (the USA). Also for judging the nominations “Solo on orchestral drums”, “Ensembles of percussions” specialists of marching ensembles, famous drums performers and teachers will be invited form the other countries.
According to that fact, the Regulation of the Competition will be changed and will be directed to the participation of not only Russian competitors but the competitors from the CIS and non-CIS countries.
As a result of that there was made a decision that in 2014 the “DRUMFEST” competition will not be held. In 2015 since 10 to 15 of May (the exact dates will be published later) a renewed competition of a higher level will be carried out and, as a consequence, with a high level of performing technique of competitors.
