Massed Bands

Double your pleasure in 2016. Witness the soul stirring spectacle of hundreds of pipers and drummers in various tartans marching and playing together; once at 1pm and again as the final event of the day.

Following the Grand Finale, the massed bands performance is the final event of the day and closes the BC Highland Games. Follow the bands into the beer garden for post-games entertainment, piping and refreshments. The Massed Bands is always a huge crowd pleaser.


Common and recognizable Scottish music such as “Amazing Grace”, “Scotland The Brave”, “The Green Hills of Tyrol (The Scottish Soldier)” are performed. In addition, in a special salute to the Chieftain of the Day, the Massed Bands play the tune “Highland Laddie”.

During the final Massed Bands performance, the results of the day’s pipe band competitions are announced.
