Started in 2008, the biennial SIBF brought about a new movement to this region's band scene in which bands of various nationalities, cultures and performance levels gather for an international exchange of musical ideas and ideals. The various components of this festival—competition, international band exchange, workshops and outreach programme—help us to promote band activities beyond schools and provide a platform where band members of all levels continuously strive for excellence by learning from the experts and through interaction with other musicians.
