Last year at Flavor Fest 2011 we launched our first Beat Battle. The auditorium at Crossover Church was packed out for the first night and definitely the second night - the finals. The response from attendee's, artists, and producers was overwhelming. With that said, here is the info on the 2nd Annual Beat Battle at Flavor Fest 2012!


Eight beat makers will attempt to invoke the ugliest face the audience at the 12th annual Flavor Fest, has ever made. Ultimately two beat makers share the opposite end of the stage, and each showcase two 60 second beats. Just like last year are the judge, however this year we are adding 3 official judges into the mix. The winner as voted by the audience in attendance, as well as at home watching live, and our official judges, will win $1,500 in cash and prizes!


Each beat maker must bring 4 original beats to the competition, but we suggest at least 5 in the case you make it to the final round and there is the need of a tie breaker. Each beat maker will play 1 minute of two beats per round, for a total of 2 minutes. We'll have an AUX cable for you to play your beats via laptop, ipod, etc. You cannot play a beat that you made that contains a rapper's verse on it. Each beat maker must be available to compete both Friday October 5th and Saturday October 6th or they will be disqualified. Our official judges, the online viewing audience, and the attending audience applause will decide the winner of each battle. Single elimination.
