2016 DCI Logo The Drum Corps International World Championships is the pinnacle of the annual DCI Tour, a series of more than 100 live competitive events that take place across the United States from June through August. The DCI World Championships mark a week-long celebration of the "very best" in the world of marching music. In 2016, nearly 40 drum and bugle corps will compete in two classes for the Open and World Class World Championship titles.

The 2016 Drum Corps International World Championships will kick off in Michigan City, Indiana, with the Open Class Prelims on August 8 and the Open Class Finals on August 9. The competitive action then heads to Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis where prelims, semifinals and finals events on August 11-13 will culminate with the crowning of the 2016 medalists. Saturday morning will be a festive time in downtown Indianapolis when non-finalist corps and additional groups perform exhibitions and participate in spirited SoundSport and DrumLine Battle events.

Special discounted ticket rates for the DCI World Championships are available for groups of 20 or more. DCI Championships provide band directors an excellent opportunity to motivate their students through the outstanding live performances that only DCI corps can deliver. Contact the DCI Group Experience Specialist at 317-275-1212 ext. 33 for details.

The competing drum & bugle corps are typically independent, non-profit organizations that are not affiliated with a specific school. Corps draw their members from the regional, national and even international level with members ranging in age from 13 to 22. Most of the students have gained experience in their high school or college marching bands. Corps hold auditions in November and rehearse monthly during the winter to prepare for the summer tour.
