2016 marks a huge year for the UK beatbox community.
Since 2005, The United Kingdom has brought the very best talent together to compete in the National Beatbox Championships - this year will be no different. Presented by 5th Element, Lyrix Organix and Relentless, and with showcases from The Beatbox Collective, Alix Perez, Dirty Dike, Chimpo & Skittles, Tom Thum, Pe4enkata & Alem, this is not just another beatbox event, but one of the most exciting musical events to hit the UK this fall!
Home to such talents like Reeps One, Contrix and the Beatbox Collective, and the birth place of HumanBeatbox.com, we here at HBB are very excited to see this year's UK Beatbox Championships.
The UK Champs have seen a lot of repeat winners in the past. Beardyman, Bellatrix, Reeps One, Ball-Zee, Grace Savage, and Contrix all have won at least twice, with Ball-Zee deservedly being the only three time champion. So who will take the title this year? Will Contrix be the second ever three time UK Champ? Will Oxbox defend his title and be this years repeat Loopstation winner? And will Tag Team BURD (Bellatrix and Grace Savage) defend their title as champs? Check out the info below, come to the event and find out for yourself.
