On the 18th and 19th July, SIN Cru will be hosting a digital festival chock-a-block with dance performances, workshops, archive footage, DJ showcases, live music sets, and SIN Cru’s first ever online 2 on 2 BBoy Battle.
This year’s Urban SINfonie battle is happening via Instagram video submissions posted throughout the rest of June and July, culminating in battles presented live over the 18th and 19th July across our channels. This is battling tailored for social distancing conditions, whilst providing opportunities for Bboys and girls worldwide to collaborate and get creative together.
Do you have crew members that live far away, or friends that you always say you’re going to enter a battle with but you’re never in the same place? This is the time to hit them up. No air miles, no MegaBus, no National Express.
Yessss prelims for the battle are now open, so get up, get into it, get involved:
- DOWNLOAD. Go to the Urban SINfonie page and download one of our free prelim mixes from DJ Marshy or Mr Margaret Scratcher.
- FILM. With your partner arrange your video and edit however you like, be as creative or as raw as necessary. This could be just two throwdowns stuck together or you could devise something more complicated – up to you. Your video must feature the two of you and last no longer than the approx 2 mins duration of the prelim track.
- UPLOAD. Submit on your Instagram with the hashtags #SINCru25 and #UrbanSINfonie2020 . Make sure you tag your partner who you’re entering with, and us @SIN_Cru
