This music, song and dance festival will unite some 500 military and civilian musicians from all over Europe and even the USA.
It is the second most important event of its kind in Switzerland, and a big turnout is expected on the weekend of 31 August to 2 September 2017. The "Commandant’s Own Marine Drum & Bugle Corps", the official orchestra of the American army, will make its first appearance in Europe. The famous Swiss military band "Swiss Army Central Band", and the "Massed Pipes and Drums" with musicians from Scotland, Ireland, and Switzerland, will also participate in the show.
In short, close to 500 musicians will see to it that the arena of Avenches resounds with this spectacle of rhythms and colors. The guest of honor, Tyrol, will provide the musical contributions before and after the main show, along with beer and pretzels for the visitors.
