Date(s) - February 27, 2016
Drum Corps Europe and Drum Corps International are pleased to announce the dates for the 2016 Indoor Music Games and SoundSport events. The first of these four events will take place on Saturday, February 27th in Dublin, Ireland.
Each show will feature two categories, firstly the DCI SoundSport category, followed by the Indoor Music Games. Both formats are aimed at encouraging new or former bands/corps to form/reform and get involved in the activity, at a level that is more achievable at this point in time. It can also be used by groups who are going through a rebuilding process as the demands of this type of contest are less than that of the normal marching band/drum corps competition.
All shows will be held in venues sports halls or gymnasiums, similar to those used for winter guard events although the season is a spring activity. This allows groups who wish to go on and compete in the summer season to do so. All groups will perform in the same arena and there will be one results ceremony at the end of the show where the results of both sections will be announced.
Registration is now open and will close 28 days before each event. The registration fee for these events is €40 / £ 30 per unit, per show. Further information will be sent out to all competing units by the show sponsors of the shows that they enter. We hope that your group will be able to join us for this exciting new series.
