R-16 Korea – Urban Arts Festival & World B-Boy Championships

R-16 Korea is an international festival and competition held in Korea showcasing the world’s top-class break dancers. It’s proudly presented by the Korea Tourism Organsation and sets the stage for the world’s top dancers, musical performers and graffiti artists.

Created and produced by Cartel Creative Inc., R-16 began in 2007 as somewhat of an experiment to promote and celebrate the growth and creativity behind the urban youth culture. Becoming a success and receiving an abundance of international attention, R-16 has now become an annual event.

The festival’s main feature showcases 16 of the world’s top b-boy crews battling it out in two categories: best crew performance and best crew battle. Making the selection for the top 16 crews isn’t easy, each group must compete and place at a R-16 preliminary tournament in their region if they’re to make the festival’s cut. During the month of May, R-16 tournaments will be held in West Europe, Thailand, Central Asia, Vietnam, India, Malaysia, Thailand and Australia to unveil the best of each region. South East Asia, the Middle East and North America will follow shortly after.

R-16 World Championships will be held July 6-8. More details closer to the date.
