British Youth Band Association
The British Youth Band Association (BYBA) is a charitable organisation which seeks to promote the growth, prestige and calibre of marching bands within Britain. Founded in 1974, the Association set up rules to standardise the running of contests, judging and scoring, as well as introducing national divisions and classes.
Membership of BYBA is open to any marching band, however we do focus on youth bands (aged 25 and under). We love traditional military-inspired marching bands, US-style drum corps, European-style show bands and everything in between - we just love music on the move!

Music Revolution 2023
The highly anticipated Music Revolution competition, scheduled for June 18th, 2023, was set to mark the beginning of the British Youth Band Association (BYBA) circuit. Unfortunately, due to issues outside of host Revolution's control, the plans for the day have had to be changed.
If you would like to be a part of the 2023 season, please get in touch!
