Red Bull Music is bringing back its jam-packed, basement bashment-inspired Culture Clash experience, and they chose good ol’ Atlanta, GA as the perfect location.
Red Bull Culture Clash always drew from the irie vibes of music, adopting the same style of Jamaican music battles that went down in the 1950s. These “sound clashes” would create both competitive nature and a sense of community, bringing everyone together for the sake of good dancehall music and even greater remixes. This year’s show will elevate the original way its done by adding four stages, each with a different crew (seen above) representing their set.
The Breakfast Club‘s own Angela Yee is set to host, and with Zaytoven, Mija & Kenny Beats, Kranium, and Fuego all representing a different sound and overall vibe, the competition is looking extra lit. Don’t miss out on this one, ATLiens!
The Red Bull Music Culture Clash goes down August 24 and is on sale now, with tickets going for $20 over at www.RedBull.com/CultureClash. They’ll also be livestreaming the event on the site, with Red Bull Radio’s own Vivian Host, Atlanta Hawks organist Sir Foster and Federation Sound’s Max Glazer hosting the pre-show at 8 PM EST.
Let the Culture Clash battles begin! Check out the video via BET below to see why Zaytoven might just have it:
