We were back at the internationales Samba-Festival Coburg / Sambaco in Germany for the 12th time, and the event just keeps getting better and better. This year saw around 100 bands with 3000 drummers play to about 200,000 people over the weekend. It’s an absolutely stunning event and the love of Samba in the city just continues to blow us away. We were there in force with a huge band with many of our members attending for the very first time.
We were the first act to play in the entire festival on the largest of the stages Schloßplatz , which really got the adrenaline flowing, followed by sets in Albertsplatz, Stadt Cafe, Prinzengarten and again on Schloßplatz.
Then on the Sunday there was the big parade through the city which was broadcast live on Bavarian TV. What an experience parading though thousands of cheering crowds before entering the main area.
