In May '17 Foden's will travel to Denmark upon the invitation of the Aalborg Music Festival.

The Aalborg Music Festival was founded in 2008 by Henrik Juul-Brinkmann as a small local entertainment contest which was initially arranged just for the one year. Due to its popularity the event has grown and the yearly festival is widely recognized as one of the most visionary and well planned festivals in Denmark.

A number of leading brass band musicians have visited Aalborg Music Festival, including Robert Childs, David Thornton, Reid Gilje, Russell Gray, David Childs, Philip Harper and Paul Lovatt-Cooper.

In 2015 the contest allowed bands to participate from outside Denmark and in 2016 champion section bands were invited to compete. The Festival now boasts four sections ranging from junior bands to champion section bands.
Every year the Festival host the unofficial nationals for brass band ensembles and along with the Danish Nationals Aalborg Music Festival is the largest brass contest in Denmark.

Foden's are looking forward to providing a gala concert at the Festival

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
