Last week, the event’s promoters surprised clash fans by implementing a whole new formula where the clash will now be held on the winner’s home ground each year.
With the new formula, the clash will be held on Saturday, October 14 in Toronto, Canada, home of defending champions King Turbo.
Adding to the World Clash frenzy, news of the clash’s wild card, Poison Dart of Antigua, dropped, and the option to watch the famed event via pay-per-view.
Earlier in the year, Irish and Chin staged preliminary national clashes, aka Rumble Series competitions, in countries including Japan (Fujiyama), Canada (King Attarney), US (Platinum Kids), UK (Platinum Cartel), and Germany (Northern Lights from Italy) to identify new sound stars.
These are the talented sounds that will take to the World Clash stage to face off against King Turbo.
The surprising move to Canada and the countries of future winners will allow greater international exposure of sound clash overall and the World Clash event, which celebrates its milestone 20th anniversary next year.
The change falls directly in line with the vision of Irish and Chin’s R.E.S.E.T (Restoring Exciting Sound System Entertainment Together) campaign, which was launched in 2012.
