Red Bull Soundclash is a totally unique clash of sounds, styles and creativity, where two bands don’t battle each other, but instead collaborate to create an innovative live music performance. The show features two bands with different music styles (e.g. Hip Hop vs. Electronic) facing off on two stages positioned on opposite ends of the venue with the audience in the middle. In a series of four rounds, the bands perform various tasks, some rehearsed, and some improvised, to showcase the array of their musical abilities.
The Red Bull Soundclash format takes each band through a series of collaborative challenges that makes it less of a battle and more of a musical conversation. In round one (the cover), both bands play their own version of the same cover song. Round two (the takeover), begins with the first band playing one of its original songs and mid-way through the other band takes over, seamlessly finishing the song in their own style. The third round (the clash), highlights each band’s musical versatility by having them perform songs in three different styles – for example: country, reggae and techno/dance. The fourth and final round is full of surprises, as each act is allowed to bring on a special guest to join their performance.
