About 2016 UK Beatbox Championships – THE FINALS
Last November, 1000 people (in London) and 90+ countries (on live stream) witnessed a legendary ‘10 year anniversary’ live show that went down in UK Beatbox Championships (UKBC) history. It was crazy.
Highlights included all-female team BURD (Bellatrix x Grace Savage) wiping the floor with the male-dominated field to be crowned UK Team Champions.
After a huge Eliminations edition in Bristol in October, all roads lead to the legendary Scala in Kings Cross for one unforgettable evening.
5th Element Agency and Lyrix Organix (The Rum Shack, Glastonbury) join forces again for one of the most exhilarating dates in the underground music calendar – with support from Relentless Energy.
This highly anticipated event brings together the world famous UKBC live show – a riotous, high octane battle competition with big cash prizes (courtesy of Relentless) and top music equipment (Korg and Samson) at stake – with the spotlight on the most cutting edge beatbox vocal artists in Britain. Alongside boundary-pushing live performances from the UK’s top artists at the forefront of Hip Hop and Bass culture.
Whether you are a beatbox newbie or a seasoned veteran, this is an audience experience like no other. It will leave you thrilled, inspired and breathless.
A true celebration of the human voice and underground live music culture.
