Steve Vai is one of many industry figures set to hand out advice at Guitar Nation 2010.
Great deals on musical instruments

Electric guitar legend Steve Vai has been confirmed as one of the stars who will appear at the Guitar Nation 2010 festival.

He will be joined by Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain and former Whitesnake and UFO electric guitar player Bernie Marsden at the event, which takes place at London's Olympia on May 8th and 9th 2010.

Although billed as a festival, Guitar Nation 2010 will be more like a trade show for the rock music world, as it will feature a host of seminars and public sessions at which aspiring musicians can learn from industry figures.

Youth, who has produced U2 and worked alongside bass guitar superstar Paul McCartney in The Fireman, will be on hand to discuss music production, while John Page of Fender will talk about designing guitars and Ace from Skunk Anansie will show visitors how to get the most out of their guitar effects pedals.

Budding rock stars will even get the chance to have their demo tapes assessed by a group of music industry experts and pick up some tips on marketing and promotions.
