Official Drum and Piccolo Carnival Music Contest

We give support and are principal sponsors of the Official Drum and Piccolo Carnival Music Contest representing the Basel championship for carnival music in its purest form.

Carnival Music Contest popularly known as ‘The Official‘

«Das Offizielle Basler Bryysdrummle und -pfyffe», the Official Drum and Piccolo Music Contest is held every year in Basel and is considered to be the Basel championship for carnival music in its highest form for drum and piccolo. Its origin dates to the early 20th century, where ‘would-be’ drum and piccolo preludes were given in the city’s drinking establishments. Gradually these preludes developed into a professionally organized music contest firing the enthusiasm of friends and lovers of carnival music.
