I’d try and write this news sounding like I’m utterly hip but, let’s face it, I’ll fail miserably. So let’s stick to the facts; grab a mobile headset this weekend and prepare to be dazzled by some of the world’s finest breakdancers.
The UK B-Boy Breakdancing Championship is set to take place in London on Sunday April 9th at 6 pm to 11 pm BST time (or 10 am to 3 pm PST), and you’ll be able to watch the whole thing from the comfort of your headset. The championship has teamed up with Digital Domain to offer a 360 degree livestream of the show straight from the best seat in the house; the judge’s table. Hopefully that’s a safe distance from any flying legs.
It’s the 21st edition of the tournament, with finalists from across the globe gathering to compete. The show is hosted by Crazy Legs of the Rock Steady Crew and Africa Islam of the Universal Zulu Nation.
Want to watch? All you need to do is download the free Digital Domain app on your Android or iOS smartphone and be ready this Sunday. You can either insert your phone into a mobile VR headset to watch the content in VR, or hold your phone in your hands and tilt it to look around. The livestream is also available on PC, and we’ll have it available here to watch on Sunday.
