Are you team New York or team Oompah?

This year’s Big BRASS Bash tour, the biggest in BRASS’ history, will see the greatest band rivalry since Blur and Oasis with New York Brass Band and Oompah Brass competing for your support.

Both bands have been festival favourites for the last 10 years and as part of the anniversary celebrations they will go head to head each night, across towns and villages in County Durham, ending with a brasstastic grand finale in Wharton Park in Durham City.

The two headliners will be joined by the likes of Funky Style Brass, Beat ‘n Blow, Always Marching Band, Les Traîne-Savates, plus special guests each evening.
