Because Bands of America events are based on mutual support, your choice to watch, and enthusiastically support, the performances of as many bands as possible helps to create a positively life-changing experience for everyone.
Student Prelims Admittance
Your students have FREE admittance to the facility for Friday evening performances. Immediately after their performance, all students will receive a handstamp that will allow them stadium access without being in uniform.
Spectator parking is available in the parking garage to the south and west of the dome. There is a charge for spectator parking. Please advise your parents to arrive early and allow extra time to get into the stadium especially during peak times.
Outside food and beverage is NOT allowed in the Stadium.
Connect with Bands of American and Music For All On-line
Music for All will be posting photos, videos, and updates from each show this fall and we would love for you, your students, and your band’s fans to join the conversation.
Encourage your band to follow Music for All and Bands of America on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat so they don’t miss any of the action. Use #boa2018 all season long and help promote music education in your community.
MUSIC FOR ALL PHOTOGRAPHY AND RECORDING POLICY
Please share this information with your parents and boosters to avoid surprises at the gate. Still cameras (digital or film, professional or otherwise) are allowed into the stadium and may be used from stadium seating, but not on the field. Videotaping is not permitted without the express written consent of Music for All. Tripods, or other similar equipment that may obstruct the view or path of travel of others, are not allowed. The issuance of a “Field Pass” or other non-media BOA Credential does not include the right to use a camera on the field. Pass holders must go into stadium spectator seating to use their cameras. More details will be included in the enclosed Important Event Procedures for each Regional.
LIVE STREAM on FloMarching
All Bands of America Championships will be live streamed. Music for All has partnered with FloMarching, a website dedicated to covering the world of competitive marching bands and the marching arts. If you have band parents, alumni, administrators, and supporters who cannot come to the event, the live stream offers a way they can watch all performances at every Bands of America Championship. Visit FloMarching.com to see the monthly and annual subscription options. Please share this opportunity and link with your band family. An annual FloMarching subscription provides access to year round coverage of Marching Arts including Bands of America, Drum Corps International, and Winter Guard International events, all for a single subscription.
MAKE THE JOLESCH ENTERPRISES AREA PART OF YOUR BOA EXPERIENCE
As you plan your performance day at the 2018 Bands of America Championships,we ask and encourage you to include a stop at the group and section photo areas established for Jolesch Enterprises, our Official Photographer. Full band group and section photos are included in the performance flow immediately following your preliminary performance. Commemorative group photos are not only an important part of the experience for your students now, but are often sought after years later and a photo not taken cannot be replicated. Jolesch Enterprises will provide three complimentary group photos for each band that takes the group photo. Group photo sales also support Bands of America and Music for All programs.
