How to watch 2020 DCI March On! Telethon 2020 and DCI Rewind: The After Party on FloMarching. You can catch the live stream of the telethon for free on DCI's YouTube channel, Facebook page, and of course for free on FloMarching!
The 2020 DCI March On! Telethon starts on Aug 8, 2020.
The three-hour show will include numerous special guests, presentations, and videos which will make you feel the aura of the DCI World Championships that we've all been missing so much this year. Immediately after, we'll be following up the telethon with a special broadcast exclusively for FloMarching subscribers.
DCI Rewind: The After Party!
Around 8:15 PM ET, tune in to FloMarching's "DCI Rewind: The After Party" for hours of performances from Drum Corps International's storied history. We've put together a night of celebration with a line-up of knock-out shows that everyone can enjoy. In between the performances, we'll be injecting small views into the past of DCI with exclusive interviews and never-before-seen content.
Here's the best part—not only can you tune in LIVE to catch these performances on Saturday night, but they will also be added to our library of archives available to FloMarching subscribers whenever and wherever!

More On The Telethon...
“With the cancelation of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hundreds of thousands of drum corps participants, fans, partners, and supporters around the world have lost out on an exciting season celebrating the highest levels of achievement in marching music performance,” said DCI CEO Dan Acheson. “Although the stadium lights are off and our stage is dark right now, it is our goal to bring together the global drum corps community for a few hours to celebrate a shared passion for the drum corps art form and to help us make sure that the spotlight will again illuminate these outstanding young performers for years to come.”
As a part of the finale of the "March On!" Telethon, the world premiere of the virtual performance of "Hope for America," a piece composed by DCI Hall of Fame members Jay Bocook and Paul Rennick. "Hope for America" is from the "Together As One" program designed by Varsity Performing Arts, a division of Varsity Spirit. The project is the culmination of collaboration between some of the nation's top marching arts designers, music education organizations, and spirit leaders. Click here for more information.
