Welcome to Wladiwoodstock: Based on the slogan “Love, peace and brass music” around 50.000 people get together at Woodstock of Brass Music – Europe’s largest brass music festival. If you are thinking of Alpine folk music and “lederhosen”, you are sorely mistaken. Swing, Rap, Jazz, Ska, Elektro, Reggae – nowadays brass music is just as diverse as the visitors at this festival.
Dirndl dresses and brass music instead of Hippies and peace pipes
Brass music is often, and legitimately, associated with “lederhosen”, dirndl dresses, beer and tradition. But brass music includes much more than the typical „um-ta-ta“. May it be Swing, Jazz, Funk, Ska, Reggae or electronic music– all these genres feature brass music. The mission of “Woodstock of brass music” festival is to show the diversity of brass styles. Mission successful!
