"Cypher Adikts is not just a jam it’s a movement born out of a necessity in today’s community to bring balance in our culture. Away from the competitions and music interruption this jam is all about keeping it raw and representing to the fullest. There’s not much more to say, the name speaks for itself CYPHER ADIKTS: you don’t come to watch, you come to catch wreck!"
Three of the illest females battle the bboy of their choice for a minimum of 5 rounds. Preserving the party atmosphere and cypher vibe of the anniversary has always been a priority so for that reason, the exhibition battles won’t be announced, the music wont be interrupted and it will all happen spontaneously.
Exhibition Line up: • AT (Flow Mo Crew) vs Vicious Victor (MF Kids) • Ayumi (Body Carnival) vs Keebz (Mind 180) • Macca (360 Flava) vs Kid David (Skill Brat Renegades)
