Saffron Lane Athletics Stadium


The 2017 Drum Corps UK summer season continues on Sunday, July 16th at Safron Lane Athletics Stadium in Leicester.

2017 marks the first time this competition will host a DrumLine Battle match-up. Designed to open up a new avenue to participation in the Drum Corps activity, Drum Corps International’s DrumLine Battle program aims to encourage new and re-emerging ensembles to participate in marching percussion through a fast paced and in-your-face competition. Units can be from alumni corps, small drum corps or even from colleges/schools – whatever you can dream up. There are no age restrictions and each DrumLine Battle unit consists of just 5 or more members. Simply put together two 1:30 – 2:00 minute performance routines and you’re on your way to successful participation!

“DCUK was re-launched in 2008 and at that time we saw the membership increase however over the past 2 to 3 years there has been a slight reduction in the number of Corps taking an active role and across the activity there has been a general decline in competing units year on year…” said Alan Thompson on behalf of DCUK, “…and so bringing SoundSport® [and DrumLine Battle] into the range of opportunities we can offer performing groups, specifically with the support and backup that DCI provide, is part of a medium to long term strategy to ensure we can secure our future”.

We want to make sure that you are the first to experience this season like never before, so put these events on your calendar today! All event inquiries and persons who are interested in forming a SoundSport ensemble or DrumLine Battle unit are invited contact us at DLB@dci.org.
