The Eastern Illinois University Panther Marching Band invites YOU to join us for the 47th Annual Panther Marching Band Festival on Saturday, October, 12th 2024 in O'Brien Stadium on the campus of Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, Illinois.

We are very excited to be part of a pilot program which will potentially offer three different performance formats for participating marching bands! One division, Open Class, will utilize BOA sheets, the second division, Scholastic Class, will utilize modified BOA sheets by taking some of the focus off the general effect caption, and the third division, Festival Class, will be a non-competitive class utilizing modified BOA sheets for comments only. The purpose of the division of classes is so that the PMB Festival can best meet the needs of our constituents and meet their individual competitive desires based upon the financial and staffing resources that each marching band has available to them. Festival staff will be working directly with participating band directors to ensure that directors have input into the sub-classifications within each division and that directors understand how to best choose the division in which they want their marching band to perform. Since we are in a transitional phase with this new format we don't quite have all the details worked out but below are the guidelines which will remain consistent from last year's festival format to this new format. We are looking forward to being part of this new format which should lead to greater inclusivity in the Illinois marching band world!
