The winner of the Blok Party battle wins a monetary prize of 400 euros, the second place carries 200 euros and the third 100 euros, along with a series of sponsor prizes.

On the day of the breakdance battle, a flea market will be opened in Močvara where you can buy the works of some of the most famous and talented artists of two generations; graffiti artists Lunar and YCP, and younger academic artists and tattoo artists, and the whole day will be accompanied by hip-hop music from gramophone records.

DJ BonToni from the Groove Playaz collective, well-known breaker DJ Tzek and respected American producer and DJ Amerigo Gazaway are responsible for the music.

“We started Blok Party in order to create a platform for young visual artists, musicians and dancers, but also to move art away from the conventional settings of galleries, theaters, etc. Our goal is to develop Blok Party into two annual events as a place that will bring together authentic locals “street art royalty”, said Blok Party organizers in the announcement of the event.

You can follow all the details, announcements about the event, as well as instructions for applying for the breakdance battle on Instagram and Facebook.
