On Friday, Aug. 24, Atlanta will once again be the home for the Red Bull Music Culture Clash. The 2017 edition was not only sold-out, but counted everyone from Ludacris to Jermaine Dupri as special guests, and this year, we have a feeling it'll be even bigger, especially with the lineup they have locked down.
As per usual, the Clash will feature four stages, each occupied by a specific crew representing their sound. It'll be a night of diversity in both the squads involved and the sounds they will be bringing. At the end of the event, the 2018 Red Bull Music Culture Clash champion will be crowned.
This year, they have a stellar crop of individuals competing. ATL's own Zaytoven will take the stage to put on for the Zaytown Global team. Hot off of that BEASTMODE 2 release with Future, Zay's sure to have some more heat on deck. DJ Mija will be linking up with Kenny Beats, who many might remember by his EDM alias of LOUDPVCK, with the pair representing the Don't Think crew. Jamaica's own Kranium (who recently dropped his own rendition of Ella Mai's "Boo'd Up") will be repping with the Frequent Flyers, who you can expect to bring that pure reggae and dancehall vibe. The D.C.-bred Dominican rap sensation known as Fuego rounds out the crews on hand, bringing his Fireboy Sound to the venue.
The event will be hosted by Angela Yee of Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, and is sure to be one of the illest events to go down this year. Past years have found a host of special guests joining the various stages, as well as playful shots being taken between the crews. It is a clash, so come prepared!
