Muralists, dancers and musicians will go head-to-head showcasing hip-hop culture, wih rapping, street art and dance all featured at the free Battles & Jam at South Bank Parkland event on Saturday 13 May.

Presented by Live at South Bank, in partnership with Brisbane Street Art Festival, the event will be held at the South Bank Piazza, which is set to become an electric battleground of high-powered and dynamic dancers showcasing their style, creativity, and freestyle skills in a 1 vs 1 open style dance battle. Performers will be live-reacting to a range of tracks mixed by DJ Seb One and creating freestyle magic as they move.

Fusing the energy and subversion that makes this counterculture movement so globally loved, the event also sees the return of high-intensity art challenge Scribble Slam. Cheer on as two muralists and street artists race each other and the clock in a live clash of colour and creativity. Rhythmic acts including Tjaka, Sachem, Tom Thum & Accomplice Collective will be pumping up the mood spinning the freshest cuts throughout the night. 

The day will also feature tasty pop-up food stalls onsite, including Bills Burgers and Oh Waffles, plus a fully licensed bar by Hop & Pickle.

Battles kick off at 4:30pm and wrap at 9:30pm and no tickets are required.
