The DCI Celebration Countdown

Drum Corps International will march back into theaters nationwide this summer with “The DCI Celebration Countdown.”

Following a one-year hiatus, this special one-night event will feature amazing sights and sounds with five iconic DCI World Championship performances including Carolina Crown's Inferno (2015); The Cavaliers’ Propaganda (2016); Blue Devils’ Metamorph (2017); Santa Clara Vanguard’s Babylon (2018); and Bluecoats' The Bluecoats (2019).

Additionally interspersed between the performances, attendees will see live spots with broadcast hosts from the 2021 spring training site of the Bluecoats, in addition to pre-recorded up-to-the-moment rehearsal camp updates from several other groups that will appear at DCI events this August at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium.

Fathom Events and DCI will present “The DCI Celebration Countdown” on Thursday, July 15, live at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT and tape-delayed 7 p.m. MT/8 p.m. PT. The program is expected to be shown in more theaters than ever before at some 720 locations across the country.

Tickets for “The DCI Celebration Countdown” will be available at and participating theater box offices beginning Friday, June 4.  (Theaters and participants are subject to change).
