The Arts Review
Get ready to make some noise as festival favourite, the Top 8 Street Dance Battle, returns to DDF following sold-out performances in 2017 and 2018.
Taking over Meeting House Square, this powerhouse event will see the freshest street dancers from Ireland and abroad square off to do battle on the dance floor. After competing in qualifying heats earlier in the day, they’ll be flaunting their best moves, from precision poppin', to gravity-defying breakin’ and hard-hitting Krump, to claim the top spot.
Pumping beats from high-profile DJs, dynamic MCs and a mind-blowing showcase by international street dance legends will up the energy in this epic celebration of street dance and hip-hop culture for all ages.
