Boiling Springs High School

Festival of Bands

The Boiling Springs High School FESTIVAL OF BANDS (FOB) is an annual competition experience for some of the finest high school marching bands in the Southeast.


The FOB is run exclusively by the Boiling Springs High School Band Boosters. The festival provides national-level adjudication for all music students who participate. The judges are solicited from among the finest music and visual educators in the country.


The Festival is successful due to the support of our community and the hard work and dedication of hundreds of parent and student volunteers, but the young people are the stars of the show. We are proud to host almost 2,000 talented musicians and color guard members each year who, through tremendous commitment to excellence, treat our spectators to a day of amazing music and pageantry through the marching band activity.
