After being staged in numerous cities around the world, Red Bull Soundclash is coming to Dublin for the first time next month.

SoundClash was inspired by the culture of competing sound systems originating in Kingston, Jamaica, during the 1950s and subsequently spreading around the world. The idea was for artists, MCs and DJs to challenge each other to create the ultimate party, whipping up the biggest crowd and walking away with the ultimate bragging rights. As clashes evolved over the years, Red Bull SoundClash was born to add wider scope to the traditional dancehall and reggae-focused musical battle.

The Dublin event will see two competing crews going head-to-head in front of a live audience. Mango x MathMan will take on rising stars Abi Coulibaly and Monjola, while both crews have handpicked some of the most exciting talent in Ireland to join them - although the additional members of each crew will only be revealed on the night.

It takes place over six rounds, with the audience ultimately deciding the winner via a decibel meter that will monitor their reaction after each performance.

It takes place at the RDS's Shelbourne Hall on October 21st, and ticket are €25 and available here now.
