From September 27-29, 2024, the international guitar community will meet for the sixth time at the Rosengarten in Mannheim, Germany, to celebrate their favorite instruments at the Guitar Summit.



We are very proud to present the legendary Tommy Emmanuel CGP at Guitar Summit 2024! As a driving force in the contemporary six-string scene, his status is unassailable worldwide. Tommy will grace the stage at the Friday Night in Concert show on September 27th, delivering his mesmerizing performances live. But that's not all! On the same day, Tommy will also be conducting a workshop.

Jared James Nichols, the blues-rock powerhouse from Wisconsin now shredding the LA scene, joins us at Guitar Summit 2024! Known for his raw, energetic blues inspired by the blues legends and his own unique twist, Jared stands alongside the likes of Gary Clark Jr. and Rival Sons with unparalleled charisma and work attitude. Get ready for an electrifying performance that brings the timeless essence of blues and rock n' roll to life!

Bass players watch out! Charles Berthoud , the bass wizard who has been one of the absolute "big names" in the bass scene for several years now, is coming to the Guitar Summit 2024. With over 1.8 million followers tuning into his YouTube channel for a mix of mesmerizing solos and stunning technical wizardry, all spiced with his signature sense of humor, he's a true bass phenomenon.

The Gristle-Man is back! Greg Koch loved it so much at last year's Guitar Summit (and we loved having him there, too!) that he'll be back this year! The "terrifying guitar phenomenon" (Joe Bonamassa) will once again unleash monster licks and ingenious guitar tricks, adding an extra touch of madness to the performance! Be there!

We are excited to announce another acoustic guitar highlight! Mike Dawes, one of the world's most innovative fingerstyle guitarists, will grace Guitar Summit 2024 for the second time!
