The first DCE European Championships were held in 2001. Since then, the event has become the largest drum corps event in Europe with dozens of participants and thousands of visitors. The event is renowned for its special atmosphere and for the fantastic shows that can be seen on the field every time. An expert judging panel judges the corps according to the rules in the DCE Competition Manual.

The philosophy of Drum Corps Europe includes striving for as few rules as possible. We are here for the corps, not the other way around! The rules that apply can be found in the Terms & Conditions.
