Zaragoza will host this week the XIV Edition of the Spanish Beatbox Battle, an event organized by the youth area of the City Council of Zaragoza. More than 30 beatboxers from 11 provinces in Spain will compete in the final, which will take place in Sala La Rotonda, located in the Las Delicias Civic Center.
The event will start at 3:30 p.m. and feature prominent artists who will showcase their skills in four different categories. In addition to offering a performance of rhythm and creativity, the winners will have the opportunity to represent Spain in the European and world beatbox championships.
The championship was presented in a press conference by the delegate councilor of youth, Ruth Bravo, who was accompanied by the director of the championship, Boris Bringas, and by Gako and Juano, two members of the Zaragoza Choripán group and runners-up at the last beatbox world championship, held in Berlin last August.
Bravo pointed out that this municipal government “steps on the streets and listens to the citizens because they are the ones who write the history of the city. Also, our young people should have spaces to express their talent and creativity in spaces like this,” while adding that this activity is another example of “our commitment to youth policies, which aim to encourage the participation and development of young people from Zaragoza.”
“We are a city that hosts conferences and events of all kinds, from the most traditional to the most avant-garde. A city that wants to make Zaragoza a brand to attract tourists and become a destination for young people looking for opportunities, training, and quality entertainment,” he emphasized.
A panel of internationally renowned judges will evaluate the performances. This panel is made up of Zekka (Spain), World Top 8; KIM (France), World Top 8; BigBen (Belgium), 3-time Belgian champion; Pe4enkata (Bulgaria), two-time world champion; and Robin (France), champion of GBB 2023. Their experience and judgment will ensure a fair and exciting competition.
The XIV Edition of the Spanish Beatbox Battle 2023 is a free event open to the public. The La Ronda Room recognized for its comfortable atmosphere and acoustics, will be the perfect place to enjoy the energy and skills of the participants.
This event not only provides a platform to promote the creativity and talent of Spanish beatboxers but also an opportunity for local audiences to immerse themselves in the vibrant culture of this art. The competition promises not only a scene full of emotion and rhythm but also a unique experience for lovers of music and urban culture.
