Grandscape presents, Drummathon 2021! Drummathon 2021 will be...drum roll please...October 3, 2021 at Grandscape in The Colony, TX (25 miles north of downtown Dallas). It's the perfect way to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Grandscape is a new (and very large!) outdoor venue. The stage and lawn at Grandscape sit center to many shops, restaurants and even hotels (discounted rates coming soon!) in a prime and thriving area of North Dallas. Grandscape sees over 8 million visitors per year!
Drummers, musicians, and friends come together from all over the world to raise funds through their own online fundraising page to fight against breast cancer. The day of the event will feature live music interspersed with drum solos as well as solos by some of the top celebrity rock star drummers - with a chance to drum alongside the rock stars! Simultaneously, attendees to this free family-friendly event can relax on the lawn or visit shops, restaurants, vendor booths, and autograph booths as well as browse our "touchless bid" silent auctions and our Official Merchandise. There will even be opportunities to snap a picture with our celebrity guests. While at the show, MC's will be throwing out an array of giveaways from our amazing sponsors.
As always, Drummathon is FREE to attend and FREE to register, and you don't have to be a drummer to join in on the fun - anyone can register and fundraise!

Drummathon is an annual family-friendly fundraising event that brings together the drumming community (of all skillsets and ages) for one common goal: to fight breast cancer.
As Drummathon works to fight breast cancer, it is also a celebration of life, music, and passion! Top fundraising drummers have the opportunity to showcase their talent in front of family, friends and attendees on a global stage! The event also features auctions, sales of Official Breast Cancer Can Stick It! merchandise and Drummathon gear, with some great musical guests sprinkled throughout the event. It's fun for the whole family! Leading up to the event, drummers, musicians, and friends alike raise funds online to compete for a plethora of awesome prizes.
The 2015 inaugural event was hosted by Dan Shinder of Drum Talk TV and kicked off right with rock star drummers Carmine Appice (Ozzy, Rod Stewart, Ted Nugent), Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven & Hell), and Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Bang Tango, Mr. Big). Since that time, the celebrity alumni list has grown exponentially.
Drummathon is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase your talent and help eradicate breast cancer at the same time -- an experience that can't be beat!
