The Hype Magazine will join live stream of Red Bull BC One finals in Rome #bcone
Red Bull BC One is THE B-Boy competition hands down…I love the way the brand digs in to the culture and delivers an impactful statement on the global dominance of Hip-Hop culture. It’s refreshing to see a brand like this not adulterate the culture…this is as real as it gets ~ JD
Fan moment aside, The Hype Magazine will join with sites around the globe to live stream this year’s BC One finals from Rome. You’ll be able to check it out right here as it goes down November 14, 2015…check out the official announcement below:
All Roads Lead to Rome
The World’s Biggest B-Boy Competition Goes Down November 14
On November 14, the most iconic B-Boy competition comes to the Eternal City, in Rome’s Palazzo dei Congressi. After 70 Cyphers and six regional Finals, the best B-Boys on the planet are convening in the eternal city for head-to-head battles to take home the ultimate breaking prize. Watch it live on Red Bull TV and in multiple languages including English, Spanish and Italian on redbullbcone.com. Tune in to the epic live show at 21:15!
Last year, millions of spectators tuned in from around the world to see Red Bull BC One All Star Menno take the throne in Paris, and the king of flow is back to defend his title.
But Menno is up against the newest generation of B-Boys. Each year the stakes become higher and the competition tougher, as breakers continue to evolve the art form. Rome’s Top 16 includes USA’s Victor (two-time North America champion), Morocco’s Lil Zoo (three-time Middle East Africa champion), and UK Wild Card Sunni, and each represents the young guns of breaking today. They’ve learned from the best and are constantly evolving the art form with their own unique skills and creativity.
Asia will be out in full force with Pocket and Leon from South Korea, and Issei and Kazuki Rok from Japan. Ratin represents Latin America and Brazil for the first time ever on the global stage. Bruce Almighty will battle for Portugal.
Other participants include USA breaking legend El Niño, who has been dancing since the age of five. Competition runs in his blood. And other Wild Cards include Russia’s Alkolil who is back for more, and first-timer’s USA’s Kareem, Poland’s Thomaz and France’s Nasso.
And then there’s Killa Kolya, the first ever World Final participant from Kazakhstan. He won the Eastern European Final, which also saw the first-ever B-Girl at the Final level, Bulgaria’s Queen Mary. Red Bull BC One has never been more global.
MC Supernatural (USA) will host the evening’s festivities and DJ Marrrtin (France) will be spinning all original tracks for the first time ever at a World Final. The judges for the evening are Cico (Italy), Wing (South Korea), Poe (USA), Lamine (France) and Focus (Finland).
Don’t miss the event live on Nov.14 on Red Bull TV. It’s a night full of surprises, including all new beats created just for the event, and moves that will have your head spinning. It’s an evening not to be missed!
Breaking came to Italy in the early 1980s, and quickly grew as a movement within the country’s many cultural centers. The Italian style is recognized all over the world, and today a rich and active scene has developed across the country. With its dynamic creativity and best-in-class dancers, Italy is primed to welcome the top breakers of 2015. Tickets sold out in a matter of seconds but you can take your seat at home or on the go with Red Bull TV!
Red Bull BC One was founded in 2004 in Biel, Switzerland. Over the years, the championship has moved from Germany to Brazil, South Africa, France, the USA, Japan, Russia and South Korea. Today it remains a key event in Hip Hop culture, helping to push the culture forward while respecting the original format of one-on-one battles.
All of the epic moments, battles and thrills can be found on Redbullbcone.com, home to the largest online network of B-Boys and fans, and the event is home to the biggest Facebook community in the scene, with more than 1.7 million fans.
