BATTLE OF DRUMS

On Friday July 28th, the brassbands Talent for Music, Dreamteam and Rhythm Allstars moved through the center of Rotterdam on their way to the stage at Hofplein. It was once again a thrilling spectacle, a big show and, above all, full of energy.

On the stage, the bands battled it all out. That musical battle was eventually won by Talent for Music. For a year, they may call themselves the Best Brass Band of the Netherlands. Want to know if they are going to prolong the title, or that another brass band will take over? Put July 27, 2018 in your calendar for the next Battle of Drums.
