We all know that Atlanta is home to some of the best musicians in the world, and now Red Bull is hosting one of the coolest events to showcase our little state’s talent. Red Bull Soundclash makes a return appearance to Atlanta and with it brings a new twist to the already unparalleled, live music conversation. Atlanta’s own Ludacris, along with Neon Trees will take to two outdoor stages simultaneously for the first time bringing an innovative clash of styles, sounds and creativity that takes “concert” to a whole new level. The fun begins at 6p.m. on Labor Day in West Plaza at Georgia World Congress Center for the culmination of LudaDay Weekend.
Ludacris and Neon Trees will face off on opposite stages and play to a single audience. As each band lets it rip, two divergent styles and genres clash over the heads of the crowd. Whomever can woo the crowd the most with their clever lyrics and hooky beats wins.
In four challenging rounds, the artists must prove their creativity and live performance skills. An emcee and signature event DJ will fire up audiences with spins and real-time commentary as they lead the musical artists and crowd through the following set of rounds:
· The Cover: where each artist plays their own take on the same cover song.
· The Takeover: a collaborative round where one band starts playing one of their own tunes then the other group takes over mid-song to finish.
· The Clash: challenges the bands versatility – as they adapt their songs to the music genre of the DJ’s choice.
· The Wild Card: the final round is all about surprises as each band brings a special secret guest to the stage to perform with them.
