The organisers of the inaugural Euro Band Festival which is scheduled to take place at Disneyland Paris on 12th & 13th October have released details of their rules and registration procedures.


Designed to both encourage and assist competitors, they hope it will create additional interest for bands looking to take part.

Mode for... and Take Us 2 the Magic, commented to 4BR: "The initial response to the event has been superb and we are working hard to support bands make a dream trip become reality.

It is very important to us to encourage and support the bands as much as possible and we have designed our rules, regulations and registration procedures to reflect this."

They added: "We wish to encourage trust, creativity and fun in brass music. There will be no expensive registration process implemented. Instead bands will be issued with a registration sheet to be sent back 8 weeks in advance.

We hope our approach will bring relief for competing bands and show just how much we, as event organisers, support and encourage the enjoyment of brass bands and their music."
