Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

Seit 65zig Jahren veranstalten wir unsere Rasteder Musiktage. Der Verein, Rasteder Musiktage e.V. hat sich insbesondere die Aufgabe gestellt, interessierte Musikvereine zusammenzuführen und in freundschaftlicher Weise die Musik zu pflegen, zu fördern und zu verbreiten. 3000 Musiker und Musikerinnen aus 10 Nationen musizieren vor ca. 8000 Zuschauern und stellen sich bei 100 Wertungskämpfen der internationalen Jury.
Zur Ausspielung gelangen die 15. Offene Europameisterschaft.
Die Internationalen Rasteder Musiktage sind stets darum bemüht, Musikvereine und Kapellen aus der ganzen Welt, nach Rastede zu bekommen. Es handelt sich hier um Spielmannszüge, Fanfarenzüge, Showbands, Drum Corps, Orchester, Tanzgruppen und Schuhplattlern. In den vergangenen 64zig Jahren waren schon 33 Nationen in Rastede zu Gast. Schon vor dem Fall der Mauer waren z.B. Vereine und Gruppen aus Polen und der DDR in Rastede. In den letzten Jahren wurden auch die Anfragen aus Ost und Süd Europa immer mehr.
Wir würden uns freuen, Ihren Verein in 2020 bei einem der ältesten Musikfestivals im Norden von Deutschland begrüßen zu können. Weitere

Celtic Band Festival

A note from the festival director:

Dear Friends

We’re now only 7 weeks away from our festival in Limerick and I wanted to reach out to all of our judges and VIP guests and give you all an update.

As it’s our inaugural year, we’ve been busy laying the groundwork for the festival. Making sure we have a well-constructed event management plan including all policies and procedures for the wellbeing and safety of our musicians, guests, and volunteers. This set’s us up nicely for future festivals and wins the trust of our both our commercial and local authority partners.

Earlier in the month, we launched a new website which will be added to over the coming weeks with details of the competitions, rules, and news. You can check it out at www.celticbandfest.com. This new website will allow us to start promoting our festival for future years. We’ve opened registration for both our 2020 and 2021 festival and have already received quite a bit of interest. Thanks to everyone for spreading the news of the new festival!

Our Irish bands are excited at the prospect of the new festival and will attend events throughout the two days in good numbers. Our hope is that over the coming years,  this multi-disciplinary festival will encourage bands to participate in events and performances that they previously wouldn’t have considered.

Judges and VIP guests will be contacted over the coming days by Lorna from the festival team to help them make arrangements. If you have any questions at all, please contact me or Lorna over the coming days and weeks.

 

Regards
