WMC is organizing a new contest in 2022, in cooperation with the Woodstock der Blasmusik festival in Austria: Copa Kapella. The contest is open to bands in which wind music plays an important role. It does not matter what style of music your band plays, if there are at least 4 wind musicians in your band.
The first 2 bands - BRASSers & Blechgspann - are chosen by the public. Friday, May 6, we will announce the three remaining bands that will be in the finals of Copa Kapella. The grand finale will take place on the 15th and 16th of July on the Market (BLOW! Stage) in Kerkrade. And that will be a party!
P.s. In the summer of 2021 the finals of the BLOW! to Woodstock contest, the band contest also organized by WMC, could not take place due to corona limitations. The five finalists of that edition are automatically placed as finalists for the Copa Kapella. In total there are 10 bands playing in the finals.
