Batedeira goes to samba festival Coburg
The biggest samba festival outside of Rio de Janeiro takes place every year in Coburg, Germany.
Batedeira will perform together with dozens other international samba bands at the 25th edition in 2016.
Every year on the second weekend in July, the International Samba Festival in Coburg attracts around 200,000
visitors to the picturesque Franconian town on the river Itz. What once began with a few thousand visitors is the
biggest Samba Festival outside Brazil today. Born from a crazy idea thought up by the organisers Rolf
Beyersdorf and Christof Pilarzyk 20 years ago, it has become a Festival with around 3,000 Sambistas, and in the
meantime, well known far beyond the borders of Germany. In 2014, the Festival was pleased to be awarded the
title “Best Samba event outside Brazil”, from the Edison Carneiro Prize
