2021 DCI Season Comes Into Focus

The Colts are excited to confirm their return to Lucas Oil Stadium in 2021! Following Drum Corps International’s announcement of Indianapolis events in August 2021, the Colts and Colt Cadets will continue their plans to keep the drum corps light burning bright for our students, volunteers and fans. The Colts design team has been in regular communication since the 2020 season was canceled in March. Concepts for a 2021 production have begun to solidify at the same time discussions and planning have taken place among DCI World Class corps directors regarding the summer tour and considerations involving the pandemic.

In addition to the announced DCI events, the Colts anticipate a number of performance opportunities in the Midwest leading up to Indianapolis. As you might expect, so much of our summer planning revolves around the pandemic and eventual vaccine distribution, but we would love nothing more than to bring drum corps back to our Dubuque fans in 2021.

The Colts launched the RED ZONE in October as a virtual vehicle to deliver their offseason training, evaluation and audition program. If you are interested in becoming a member of the 2021 Colts Drum & Bugle Corps, join the RED ZONE at We do not anticipate in-person rehearsal events for the foreseeable future, so all auditions and preparations for the 2021 production will continue virtually.
