We are delighted to announce that applications to perform at the Encontro Scotland street band festival are now open!
Bringing a multitude of UK and international bands to the streets of Glasgow during Merchant City Festival, the Encontro will celebrate street band music and associated art forms (dance, costume, visual arts and street theatre) with a joyous, outrageous, thrilling and inspirational weekend festival.
The Encontro is a creative collaboration between SambaYaBamba and Oi Musica, celebrating SambaYaBamba’s 20th birthday. Bands, players, music organisations, dancers, artists, teachers, youth players and members of the public will come together for an exciting and packed programme – creating the first international street band festival to take place in Scotland.
