Stadium & Facilities
The Bandmasters Championship is proud to feature one of the most impressive venues for any marching band contest in America. Historic Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, home of the UofM Tigers since 1965, has hosted memorable college football games, professional sports, concerts, and hundreds of other events. And each year on a Saturday in late October, it welcomes many of the South's top bands.
The 58,000-seat Liberty Bowl provides the perfect atmosphere for championship marching band performances. The field is completely enclosed, so attention is squarely focused on your band with no outside distractions. The AstroTurf playing surface, the latest in artificial turf technology, looks and feels just like natural grass but stays in perfect condition no matter what the weather conditions. The press box provides the adjudicators an excellent vantage point and good read of your show, visually and musically. Our complimentary high-camera video recording gives you an unparalleled view of your drill.
