This is said to be the biggest-ever set-up for this event, with four stages being placed strategically inside the arena, from which each of the four vying teams will perform.
There is a level of secrecy regarding the guest performers who will grace the stage.
Previous stagings of Culture Clash have been held in London, England, and Atlanta in the USA. Inspired by Jamaican sound system battles from the 1950s, Red Bull Music Culture Clash revives the tradition with a modern layout involving four crews — rising artistes Jada Kingdom and Govana with Strike Force; American record producer Salaam Remi, deejay Spragga Benz, Jack Scorpio, Jah Snowcone, DJ Bambino and Disco Neil with Do It For The Culture; DJs from the wider Caribbean Barrie Hype, King Bubba and Willy Chin with Riddimstream Plata; and entertainers Teejay, Romeich and Ding Dong with Romeich Entertainment.
The Jamaica Observer’s Splash has been informed that all the artistes and team members are already on the island, and DJ King Bubba of Riddimstream Plata is rearing and ready to showcase his music for the Jamaican audience.
“I am very excited to be here. This is the first time that soca is being included in the Red Bull Culture Clash. I am here to showcase just what this genre can do in a class like this. Do not underestimate soca in this situation. We are gonna bring it, and represent for soca music in this clash,” he shared.
Jamaica has had success at the Red bull Culture Clash in recent years. Popcaan and his Unruly team won the event in London in 2016 and in Atlanta in 2017. His crew for London included Whiz Kalifa, Spice, Tony Matterhorn, and Kranium.
