As we draw closer to the 2018 Melbourne Guitar Show (August 4&5 Caulfield Racecourse), exhibitors are beginning to announce their on-stand talent and finalise their clinic sessions and some of the names which have been added to the show are huge.

Since the second artist announcement a month or more ago, names that have been added to the 2018 Melbourne Guitar Show include: Diesel, Harts, Bec Sandridge, Slowly Slowly, Jack Jones (aka Irwin Thomas), Kirk Lorange, Damnations Day, The Omnific, Malcura and Michael Paynter… and they’re just the ones we know about!

Where can you see these artists?
