Countdown to the championships
A week from now, pipers and drummers from more than 40 bands from Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia will be converging on Sydney for the 2016 Australian Pipe Band Championships being hosted at Knox Grammar School.
The biennial showcase of the Australian pipe band movement will be the first livestreamed to the world under a three-championship agreement secured by Pipe Bands Australia.
The championships will be staged on Saturday and Sunday 1-2 October.
The livestream will be available through pipebanned.com, an Australia company with extensive experience streaming national and international events for other genres.
