For the first time in 10 years, Red Bull announces the return of Red Bull SoundClash.
With four shows slated to make landfall across four historic music hubs (Atlanta, Houston, Nashville, and Chicago), Red Bull SoundClash will deliver a once-in-a-lifetime interactive live music experience where fans help choose the winner. This year, competing artists will battle it out for the biggest crowd reaction (captured on a decibel meter) with hopes of being crowned the next SoundClash champion.
Inspired by the culture of competing sound systems that originated in Kingston, Jamaica, Red Bull SoundClash will test the limits of each artist’s creativity through exploring music styles, collaborations, and battling. The competition will take place over a series of rounds as artists (and bands) contend for clashing rights.
The 2021 Red Bull SoundClash U.S. series kicks off in Atlanta, GA on 11/30 with Shelley (formerly known as DRAM) vs Westside Boogie; Houston on 12/2 with The Suffers vs Tank and The Bangas; Nashville on 12/9 with Bren Joy and a special guest; and Chicago on 12/15 with Rico Nasty vs Danny Brown.
While SoundClash is a full-fledged bout of artistic ingenuity, the competitive nature of Red Bull’s live music experience doesn’t overshadow what the event series represents: SoundClash is ultimately a celebration of the power of live music, collaboration, and creative empowerment.
