An awe-inspiring collaboration, uniting musicians from across the UK and Europe to form one mighty 300-strong ensemble!

The massed band extravaganza offers an exciting platform for artists of different backgrounds and specialisms to come together, collaborate and create something truly unique. This year we are delighted to have an original piece of music composed collaboratively for the festival by Cuban carnival music specialist Christian Weaver and SambaYaBamba’s Musical Director Roddy Dickson, with additional material contributed by a selection of UK artists. Massed horns, drums, singers and a good dash of adrenaline. Not to be missed!
