Big news in Australian Hip Hop Battles with the announcement of a World Class event 'Word Adelaide' being held mid August. Details as follows...


You ready for this? The language of war is set to come to life in a boxing ring!
From flyweights to superheavyweights, prepare for a rap battle unlike any other. A massive $12,000 in prizes are up for grabs, making this competition one of the largest of its type in the world. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned MC, there’s a place for you to get involved.


National and international MCs will pit their skills in ‘a capella’ beat box and instrumental sections, all with an eye on the winner-takes-all grand prize of $10,000.


Overseeing this event is PJ Murton (Pulling Strings), the man who took the Hilltop Hoods from Adelaide favourites to international stars. PJ is passionate about music, and about making it accessible for everyone. Rap spans continents and tackles society’s most pressing issues. In a festival celebrating words’ power and meaning this explosive form of music and word usage is a not to be missed experience. 


Australian hip hop continues to take the world by storm, with artists including the Hilltop Hoods, Bliss N Eso and 360 regularly touring internationally. The Freestyle MC Competition will ONLY feature Australian hip hop. It’s open to all comers from all places and will also showcase extraordinary home-grown talent.
