The Red Bull Music Culture Clash will be returning to Atlanta for a second year in a row this Friday August 24th. The night will be an innovative live music experience that will be comprised of four stages, each featuring a different crew repping their unique sound. The crews will be battling for the title of Red Bull Music Culture Clash winner.
The Culture Clash will be hosted by Angela Yee, radio personality for Power 105.1 morning show, The Breakfast Club. This year, Trap Music will be at the forefront of the competition and reimagined through dancehall, hip-hop, electronic, Latin and more! Culture Clash is not a DJ battler or band competition, but rather about who has the heaviest sound, the best tunes, the most effective MC tactics and the most entertaining presentation. The crews battle through unique sound stylings in an effort to get the loudest responses from the crowd. A round is won by crowd reaction, pure and simple.
This year’s participating crew includes:
Zaytoven with Zaytown Global
Mija & Kenny Beats with Don’t Think
Kranium with Frequent Flyers
Fuego with Fireboy Sound
To commemorate the 2018 event, Red Bull has created a limited edition can in partnership with Atlanta-born visual artist FRKO, who has risen to fame through his work with hip hop’s biggest starts, including Gucci Mane, Action Bronson and more. The can will only be available in ATL and offers consumers the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience at the event itself.
The Red Bull Music Culture Clash will be taking place Friday August 24th with the door opening at 7:00 PM and the show beginning at 9:00 PM. The event takes place at the 787 Windsor in Atlanta, located at 787 Windsor Street SW, Atlanta, GA 30315. You can listen live on Red Bull Radio starting at 8:00 PM for a pre-show hosted by Max Flazer and Sir Foster. General admission tickets are currently $20 and are available here.
