The second Oktoberfest Sunday starts with an open-air concert at the Bavaria.

In honour of the 175th Oktoberfest, former Oktoberfest landlord spokesman Willy Heide organized a very special and lasting present: on the middle Oktoberfest Sunday, all Oktoberfest bands gather on the steps at the feet of the Bavaria statue at 11 a.m. to play a concert with more than 300 musicians.

The event is produced and broadcasted by the public Bavarian Television. You can get still watch the 2017 edition on Facebook.

In front of thousands of spectators, the bands play marches and folksongs and at the end the Bavarian National Anthem. The landlords, however, use this occasion to honour those who rendered exceptional service to Oktoberfest.
