FREE Webcast of the Drum Corps Europe Championship

Drum Corps Europe will once again broadcast the European Championships live on the internet this year. The live stream is FREE to watch and can be accessed via a banner on the website.

For those who can’t come to Kerkrade, The Netherlands, this year to attend the largest drum corps event in Europe, the live Webcast is the next best thing. Four cameras will cover the performances. The presentation is in the hands of Robby Overvliet (DCI judge) and analysts Joe Fitzpatrick and Paul Doop will give their opinions on the shows.

The Webcast, provided by a team of 17 volunteers, is a production of the Video Vault (the joint video project of Drum Corps Europe and Color Guard Netherlands), in collaboration with Show & Marching Music, in charge of the audio recordings.

All performances can be viewed on-line soon after the championships, in even better HD quality. Waiting months for the recordings to become available is a thing of the past. Once the shows are available as video-on-demand, DCE will announce this on the Website.

In addition to Saturday’s live Webcast, a preview will be aired on Friday evening from 8:00 PM Kerkrade time. Robby Overvliet will take a look at what is coming on championships day with videos, statistics and interviews. This broadcast will also be available FREE.

The Webcast on Saturday will start at 9:00 AM Kerkrade time .
