Mill, South Carolina), Madison Scouts (Madison, Wisconsin), the Cadets (Allentown, Pennslyvania), and the Cavaliers (Rosemont, Illinois)—as they compete for top honors in the first of over 100 competitions in more than thirty states on DCI’s fifty-three day summer tour.

From modest beginnings four decades ago, Drum Corps International (DCI) has developed into a powerful, nonprofit, global youth activity with far-reaching artistic, educational, and organizational influence. Its competitive summer tour, consisting of DCI-sanctioned competitions throughout the United States (known as the Drum Corps International Tour), culminates in August with the week long DCI World Championships. Through the annual DCI Tour and more than forty World Championships in nineteen North American cities, Drum Corps International provides entertainment to millions through live performances and broadcast events. DCI continues a tradition of exceptionally high-quality performance ensembles, with membership in the top corps highly sought-after and extremely competitive, attracting the interest of potential members from many countries. Drum Corps International is Marching Music’s Major League.
“The DCI events are extremely attention-grabbing and an amazing segment of our performing arts events that we bring to the big screen. Being able to watch these events live in theaters allows the audience to fully experience the talent of these teams,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey.
