The hosting organization:
Norwegian Band Federation is the largest voluntary music organisation in Norway. Through their membership, the 1712 member bands with their 70 318 players are offered good conditions for their hobby. A network rich in tradtion also gives them a strong and influential position in the cultural life of Norway.
HM King Harald V is the patron of The Norwegian Band Federation. His Majesty has greatly honoured the band movement by awarding a royal trophy to the championships for adult bands. This means a lot to the performers and for The Norwegian Band Federation’s work in raising the profile of the band movement.
Since 1918, the musical fellowship of The Norwegian Band Federation has offered a better basis for negotiating and better financial results for bands. Through membership of The Norwegian Band Federation, bands are also a part of a cultural fellowship and a well-developed network of contacts, something which hopefully makes it easier and more interesting to be associated with bands.
