From 12 to 16 June, 2019

Welcome to IFOB 2019

This international wind band festival is part of the centennial acts of the Cultural Association La Pamplonesa Wind Band. In the course of the festival, several activities will be held: concerts, parades, conferences, workshops, and an exhibition fair, as well as leisure activities for the participants all around the city. Do you want to be part of this huge experience?

La Pamplonesa Wind Band had in its origin the celebration in Pamplona of a Band Festival on July 14, 1919. This Festival was held in order to support the initiative of several local musicians to create a civil band, as in Pamplona there were 3 military bands but no city band. In memory of those who organized that Festival and all the musicians who have been a part of the citie's musical life, from La Pamplonesa we want to pay an homage with the repetition of that event, amplifying it to the artistic and social reality that we live today and inviting ensembles from all around the world. For this reason, the aim to make the International Festival Of Bands (IFOB) will serve to recognize the efforts of all the musicians who have passed through La Pamplonesa during this century of the Band's life, and to return to the city in the form of a festival the affection and follow-up that they have with the wind band.
