DCUK to host first British DrumLine Battle


DrumLine Battle®, a rapidly growing series of worldwide competitive and exhibition music ensemble performance opportunities produced by Drum Corps International, and Drum Corps United Kingdom are pleased to announce the first officially sanctioned DrumLine Battle in England in conjunction with the 2015 British Drum Corps Championships.

“We are thrilled to have an official DrumLine Battle affiliated with DCUK” DrumLine Battle Events and Promotions Manager Eric Hjellming said. “This event will not only introduce DrumLine Battle to England, but it will also expose the audience to unique performances in head-to-head match ups like never before.”

Hosted Saturday, September 19th at Select Security Stadium in Widnes, Cheshire, UK, the 2015 British Drum Corps Championships feature 12 of the best Drum Corps based throughout the country. Four of these corps, Concord AllStars, The Pacemakers, The Company and Thurrock Marching Brass, will have the distinction of being DCUK’s first DrumLine Battle participants. The battle will occur after the completion of Finals competition, immediately before final retreat and scores.

Alan Thompson, on behalf of DCUK, added “Having seen the DrumLine Battles in Indianapolis at this year’s Drum Corps International World Championships and the excitement they generated I could see how we might be able to incorporate this into our Championships day and I see this as being a first of many Battles we hold here in the UK.”
