Hi all I have decided i want to attend one more band contest before the end of the year. Now the problem i have is picking just one. British Open has all top bands and having just been to the Europeans in Birmingham i know the hall is fantastic. Throw on top of that a Downie piece that looks likely to be a stunning contest. But then what happens we get sparke for top section, King in the box and a selection of bands that you wont find at any contest in the world. Add to that the RAH and u have another fantastic contest. Then there is BIC. I have seen the 2006 dvd and would love to see it. U have the reps from Austria and Norway as well as an impressive line up of bands and it looks likely to be the most entertaining weekend of music all year. Now i would love to go to all three and will do in years to come but maybe if people could share there views and maybe tell me about there experiences of these contests (both good and bad) and what the weekend events include to help me decide.
