Welcome to the home of the European and Indoor Music Games.

Drum Corps Europe has two types of events that they host among with their national partners, the Indoor Music Games and the European Music Games. On the last Saturday of September, they organise the DCE European Championships.

Indoor Music Games

Each show will feature two categories, firstly the DCI SoundSport category, followed by the Indoor Music Games. Both formats are aimed at encouraging new or former bands/corps to form/reform and get involved in the activity, at a level that is more achievable at this point in time. It can also be used by groups who are going through a rebuilding process as the demands of this type of contest are less than that of the normal marching band/drum corps competition.

European Music Games

The European Music Games are show competitions that are held every summer in various European countries. American-oriented show corps, drum & bugle corps, but also more traditional corps go head-to-head with each other in a competition. They bring innovating shows that consist of an energetic combination of music, dance and choreography. The avid musicians bring out the best of themselves in front of an expert judging panel and enthusiastic spectators.
