Streaming Updates

No more sleeps! It’s here! It’s time for the Australian National Band Championships!

We have worked away feverishly making sure everything will be great for the stream. Especially for you, Loyal Viewer…

Here are a few updates

  • We are bumped in for Halls 1 and 2. Fast internet, interesting camera angles and great audio. You’re all in for a treat.
  • We will also be live streaming the Parade of Bands and ANZAC ceremony on the Saturday morning. If it rains, this will be tricky. Luckily we have our amazing multi use towels to dry ourselves off with.
  • We’ll be conducting interviews and vox pops over the course of the competition. Feel free to come and say hello and we’ll try to get your voice out live on the internet
  • We will be streaming the Hall 3 action as well (Saturday afternoon only). This will be Junior Brass and D Grade Concert bands. I’ll put a watch-now button up for that on Saturday morning.
  • We will be running a People’s Choice Award again. Not sure if we’ll have an impressive trophy or not
  • We will be doing in-person sales of all our merchandise. Cheaper if you buy in person because there’s no shipping! We won’t have a table set up (since we’ll be so busy delivering such an amazing quality live stream), but come and see us and we’ll be able to sort you out.

That’s all for now… If you’ve got any questions, ask on the live-chat (on the watch-now pages) or send an email to me at
