This first "Pesta" was held in Kuala Lumpur in 3rd August 1968 at the Methodist Boys' School with 600 participants. It was initially held as a National Review and Display to give BB Malaysia a sense of unity and better understanding. It was preceded by two days of rehearsals and band competition which six bands took part.
Today, the Pesta has evolved to to include more competitions, with Foot Drill, Group Singing and recently - Group Dancing. However, the core principle of the Pesta remains steadfast, which is an avenue for fellowship, understanding and unity.
The Pesta has been held in Kuala Lumpur numerous times - 1st Pesta (1966), 3rd Pesta (1971), 7th Pesta (1979),
8th Pesta (1981), 10th Pesta (1990) and finally the 17th Pesta (2006).
