BACK TO THE CITY FESTIVAL
Two producers share the stage, and each plays their own beat selection that comprises of 2 of they hottest beats at their individual stations. There are 2 judges and the last vote is from the crowd. This is measured by the crowds’ response after the 2 judges have voted. The producers have 5 min to play a selection of they top 2 beats. We prefer the beats to be 2 minutes long max.
The beat battles will have 3 rounds on the day:
ROUND ONE: Selection round
ROUND TWO: Semi Final
ROUND THREE: Final round.
