DCI Box Office Digital Ticketing Information

Drum Corps International is very excited to begin putting tickets on sale for select events on the 2021 DCI Celebration Tour.

Similar to most major sports leagues, concert events and airline boarding passes, all tickets sold through the Drum Corps International Box Office this summer will be offered exclusively as digital tickets, in an effort to create a fully “contactless” ticketing experience for patrons.

DCI Digital Ticketing FAQs

What is different from DCI tickets I’ve purchased in the past?

1. DCI will no longer print and mail paper tickets for events.
2. All events will be cashless and non-contact.
3. For event entry, spectators will utilize either a Mobile Ticket using their smartphones or have their Print-At-Home tickets with them which will have been emailed at the time of purchase.

How does digital ticket delivery work?

You will order your tickets as follows:

1. Access the ticket ordering page on DCI.org via your computer or mobile device. 
2. Select the show you want to attend.
3. Select your seats.
4. Select your delivery method: Mobile Delivery or Print-At-Home
5. Complete your transaction.

NOTE: Not all DCI event tickets are sold through the DCI Box Office. Look for the DCI Box Office Icon for related events.

I have ordered tickets for several people. How do I get their tickets to them?

Mobile Tickets: You can transfer tickets to each member of your party so they have it on their smartphone. See “Guide to Transferring Mobile Delivery Tickets” below.

Print-At-Home Tickets: Print the tickets out and give them to the other members of your party.

Can I purchase tickets at the show site?

There will not be a box office to purchase tickets on-site, however, our digital delivery options will allow you to purchase tickets even as late as while walking up to the gate at the stadium on the day of the event. Signage with QR codes will be placed around the box office that customers can scan with their mobile device to order tickets and instantly get their tickets delivered via email to their phone.

Please note that while we will not have a box office selling tickets on-site, ticketing staff will be available on-site to assist with any ticketing issues you may have.

We strongly encourage patrons to order their tickets in advance of the event for the following reasons:

1. Ordering a day in advance of the show avoids the $5 day of show price increase.
2. Ordering in advance saves you time. You simply walk up to the gate, show your ticket and go inside. No standing and waiting while your order processes and is delivered to your mobile device.
3. Should you have an issue, you have time to resolve it prior to arriving at the event.

Can I leave tickets at Will Call?

As we are no longer printing paper tickets, there will be no Will Call window.
