UK Bboy Championships 20th Anniversary | #SXSTV
April 8, 2016
This year, UK B-Boy Championships partners with Relentless Energy Drink as it celebrates 20 years in the game with a spectacular event on Sunday April 10.
Showcasing some of the world’s best dancers at the O2 Forum, Kentish Town, the annual UK B-Boy Championships is hosted by the original and undisputed pioneer of B-Boying, Crazy Legs from Rock Steady Crew. The World Finals will see crews from around the world breaking out their sickest moves and tricks and battling it out in a bid to win the coveted title of World Champions.
Carrying on the tradition of featuring hip-hop’s hottest acts (Professor Green, Estelle, Roots Manuva and Beardyman are just some of the names who have rocked the b-boy champs crowd) this years Anniversary event is garnering special excitement as two of London’s hottest grime artists, GHETTS & RUDE KID will be performing their array of solo and collaborative underground hits to an expected sell-out crowd. Both artists produced one of this years sickest EP’s, the ‘#SIX,FIVE, THREE’! In addition REEPS ONE will be showcasing his ridiculous skills live on stage. The award winning Beatbox artist and musician’s genre defining sound is heavily influenced by London’s Electronic Music culture.
Founded in 1996 by DJ Hooch, the UK B-Boy Championships is one of the world’s greatest annual hip-hop events. Dancers travel to the UK to represent their country at one of the most eagerly anticipated competitions in the hip-hop calendar. The event features B-Boy Crews, solo breakers, poppers, lockers and hip-hop dancers. It also plays host to some of the most exciting hip-hop music artists from the UK and US.
DJ Hooch commented: “It’s going to be wicked returning to London where so much history was made 20 years ago. With worldwide Breaking and Street dance in general developing beyond anything we dreamed of, the level for this 20th Anniversary is gonna be ridiculous!”
