The European Music Games are various show competitions that are held every year in various European countries in the summer. American-oriented show corps and drum & bugle corps compete against each other. They show new shows, which consist of an energetic combination of music, dance and choreography. The eager actors get the best out of themselves under the gaze of an expert jury and enthusiastic spectators. The European Music Games are a collaboration between Drum Corps Europe and various national associations, the DCE Certified Partners.
