The forthcoming Bolsover Festival of Brass will once again provide a free interactive worldwide live-stream of all the performances on its contest day.
Last year, the event attracted over 25,000 viewers worldwide with more than 500 people participating in on-line voting for their favourite entertainment performances from the competitors.
The festival takes place at the Heritage High School in Clowne on Sunday, 6th October with plans well underway to ensure that each band's performance in every section will also be recorded using the latest technology.
The organisers are confident that the broadcast will encourage viewers to share their messages of good luck and opinions, as well as enter some give-away quizzes throughout the day.
A spokesperson told 4BR: "We've linked up with one of our major sponsors, Warwick Music Group — the creators of pBone, pTrumpet and pCornet and an extensive range of award-winning teaching resources — to bring additional attractions to the day, both at the event itself and through our multi-media broadcast and social media output."
They added: "Alongside our local partner sponsors Elmton with Creswell Parish Council, Clowne Parish Council and Shirebrook Town Council, this enables us to use the latest technology to enable the performances to be broadcast to every corner of the globe, and we are keen to encourage and engage with viewers worldwide — no matter where they might be."

It was announced that the broadcast will be hosted by 4BR Editor Iwan Fox and Chris Thomas of Brass Band World magazine, whilst the contest organisers have said that there is just one space available in the Second Section if a band wishes to enter.
