After a successful first edition of the Guitar Expo at Hard Rock Hotel Bali in 2019, the event is returning again on October 29th – 30th, 2022. The Hard Rock Hotel Guitar Expo aims to cultivate an appreciation for musicians and strengthen the community through music.
Guitar Expo is a must-attend event that presents a stellar line-up of electric and acoustic guitar makers, vintage dealers, and exhibitors of related guitar gear. On display are a variety of guitars, basses, electrics, acoustic guitars, and other types of musical instruments. In addition to concerts and jam sessions, the Hard Rock Guitar Expo will also feature a guitar clinic and rock guitar competitions for participants of various ages. The competition is free to enter and the period for submitting applications will begin on October 1st and continue until October 20th, 2022.
All of the participants will be vying for the opportunity to take home the grand prize, the Heritage Electric Guitar. The winner of the competition will not only receive a number of fantastic prizes, but they will also have the opportunity to perform at Centerstage on the last day of the Guitar Expo. The jury will consist of two judges; the lead guitarist of Lolot Band, Donnie Lesmana and Sugix Anantra; the 1st winner of Ibanez Flying Fingers 2018.
All are experienced composers, arrangers, and performers. JRX will host a coaching clinic in addition to his one-of-a-kind performance that will take place on October 30.
“This event provides a platform for emerging guitarists to showcase their talent, connect with other artists in the community, and potentially win some great prizes,” said Shane Coates, the General Manager of Hard Rock Hotel Bali.
The Hard Rock Guitar Expo is indeed a unique opportunity that brings together not only the local music community but also music fans from all over the world, with a particular focus on those who are passionate about guitars. It’s a free event and anticipated to attract Hard Rock Hotel guests, other tourists and local residents.
Hard Rock Guitar expo will be held on October 29th – 30th from 10 am to 6 pm.
In addition, Hard Rock Hotel Bali will display the Pink Guitar collection in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness and raise funds through the sale of Pinktober merchandise on this occasion. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed in October each year to raise awareness of the disease.
