The 2019 DrumLine Battles


At this years DCUK British Drum Corps Championships on Saturday 21st September we had one of our largest DrumLine Battle events which featured 7 competing units.

Drumsound45 (Thurrock Marching Brass)
Kidsgrove Scouts
Concord AllStars
The Pacemakers

The heats took place after the Open Class Prelims and following a live draw, before the Championships day started, Revolution had the "Bye" straight to the Semi Finals and so the remaining Battles were...

Starriders who beat Kidsgrove Scouts
Concord AllStars who beat the Pacemakers
Drumsound45 who beat Beeches

The Semi Finals took place under the floodlights straight after the Open Class Finals and...

Drumsound45 beat Revolution
Concord AllStars beat Starriders

And so we had our Final - a repeat of last year - Concord against Drumsound 45!

Concord against Drumsound 45 - The Final

The noise and encouragement from the audience and the other drum lines was deafening and, after much deliberation, the 2019 DCUK DrumLine Battle Champions - and winning their 5th consecutive title - were Concord.

Thank you to all the drum lines for providing such a fantastic and exciting spectacle - can 2020 be even bigger? Can Concord be beaten? Contact us.

We would like to thank our Judges - John DeNovi from DCI, Jason Oates of DCUK and Phillip Black of Halton Stadium - for adjudicating over all the battles and having the difficult task of deciding the winners and also huge thanks to DCI for their help and support allowing us to bring this exciting event to the UK.
