Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2013, Drum Corps International's Big, Loud & Live will once again feature performances from the DCI World Championship Prelims. The event will be broadcast via satellite from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to cinemas nationwide.
“Embarking on its 10th year, we’re extremely proud that Big, Loud & Live continues to evolve in its pioneering role on National Cinemedia’s Digital Broadcast Network,” Acheson said. “We’re very pleased to be able to share the evening with tens of thousands of fans across the country, many of whom have made this into an annual tradition when they’re not able to travel to the World Championships in person. The only thing better is to be there to see and hear it live!”
Theater attendance has steadily risen since the first Big, Loud & Live program debuted in 2004. Appearing in just 44 theaters in its first year, the event spread into a record-setting 609 theaters across 47 states in 2012. More than 43,000 attended last summer’s cinema event.
Big, Loud & Live 10 will feature the performances of the top 15 corps at the Prelims, along with highlights of groups that performed earlier in the day.
