With the possibility of having to reschedule this year’s DCI Minnesota Premier Event at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis announced last week, Drum Corps International has worked with the University of Minnesota to keep the original Saturday event date as scheduled.

The event will take place on Saturday, July 16, featuring a lineup of 20 World, Open and All-Age Class corps with the first group stepping off at 4:30 p.m. CT.

“The University of Minnesota athletic department heard our concerns about having to reschedule and has worked with us to create an end result which satisfied the needs of the university, Drum Corps International and our performing ensembles,” DCI Executive Director and CEO Dan Acheson said. “We are very grateful that U of M is working with us to ensure the success of our 2016 event.”

The new 4:30 p.m. start time will be two hours later than originally scheduled on Saturday, July 16. Current ticket holders will be notified via email this week with additional information about the event at TCF Bank Stadium.
