How can i get in a band?

Well I've been playing drums for 5 and a half years now and i really want to get in a band. And ideas how I could do this?

Start one.  Then make the other players vie to get into YOUR band.  I'm not kidding.

You shouldn't have a problem. Drummers are way less common than guitarists...

Place an ad in Craigslist.

Isn't Craigslist an American thing?
No, I don't think so.

When I look at the right column in my local US craigslist, there's a whole list of other countries...

 drummers are really hard to find like Gmoon said i also say either start one or post yourslef on craigslist
Correction: GOOD drummers are really hard to find. 

In addition to the ads: Find opportunities to jam with folks so they've heard you and know you're out there looking. If you know someone who's running a studio, you could try auditioning as a standby/session musician; that's another way to get to know other performers.


 well good drummers are even harder to find

Lol Really quick answers.
Check the classifieds in your local newspaper or independent paper. People are always posting "Guitarist seeks drummer/bassist " ads or similar, usually with a description of the kind of music they want to play.
