Manifesto: Red Bull Culture Clash [Photos]
Toronto, ON – The memories of this year’s Manifesto continue to roll in with more photos from HipHopCanada staff photographer Julian Frank at the Red Bull Culture Clash. After a last minute venue change due to weather, Julian traveled to the Molson Amphitheater to see Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation vs Lucky Me (Hudson Mohawke, Lunice, Rustie & Just Blaze) vs Mad Decent (Dillion Francis, DJ Sega, South Rakkas Crew, Paul Devro) vs Toronto All Stars (Starting From Scratch, Lissa Monet, Lindo P, Mensa).
Pioneers from four styles of sound system culture faced off in the city’s first ever cross-genre culture clash. Four DJ crews hailing from Los Angeles, London, New York and Toronto represented their sound on four different stages and sound systems. As they battled it out in front of an exciting a crowd of thousands, Toronto’s All Stars ultimately became the reigning champion of the Red Bull Music Academy World Tour – Culture Clash Toronto stop.
