Friends of DCI

Encourage and experience achievement at a higher level

Friends of DCI Logo

Membership in the Friends of DCI helps to guarantee that future generations of young, world-class performers enjoy the opportunity to achieve their ultimate performances on the greatest stage in marching music, and you'll be there to enjoy every heart-pounding minute from the best seats in the house at the DCI World Championships. Plus, you'll get exclusive access to "Friends-only" box office presales for dozens of select DCI Tour events!

As a Friend of DCI, you'll enjoy exclusive, partners-only benefits in and around the summer drum corps season. You will belong to an "inner circle" of our most committed fans who wish to encourage – and enjoy – "Achievement at a Higher Level" today and for years to come.

Previously, Friends of DCI memberships included two major components: a philanthropic donation to support the mission of DCI as well as access to tickets in the Friends of DCI seating section. In most cases, those tickets would be considered a premium for the donation (included as a benefit of your membership at no additional charge). For some membership levels, there was an option to purchase additional tickets as well.

In 2021, changes were made to streamline the processing of memberships and tickets. Those two components are now offered separately. Each membership level still includes access to tickets in the exclusive Friends of DCI section, but tickets will be processed as an additional purchase and membership level pricing has been adjusted accordingly. The amount of the donation needed to qualify for specific levels and how many tickets are available for purchase to the upcoming World Championships is listed below.

Become a "Friend of DCI," and share your commitment with future generations of outstanding young performers.
