2018 DCI World Championships

 

Below is an article that we shared last year for DCI World Championships happening next week. We’ve updated it for 2018!

Welcome back to the Chops blog.  We’re busy gearing up for the Drum Corps International (DCI) World Championships, held right here next week in Indianapolis!  It takes place at Lucas Oil Stadium and surrounding areas.  The competition inside Lucas Oil stadium isn’t the only thing to see.  There are many events throughout the week, most of which are free and open to the public!

Here’s our basic guide to help you take in some of the action.

We’re well into summer and it’s time for drum corps to hit the road!  For those who aren’t familiar, drum corps (or drum and bugle corps) are marching ensembles (brass, percussion, and color guard) that travel throughout the country each summer rehearsing and performing in different cities at competitions. If you’re unfamiliar with the activity, clickHEREto find out more.

There are many opportunities to see drum corps in competition in Indiana and surrounding states. Here is a partial list of events.
