The (free) all-day event moves to Delhi this weekend, taking over the Garden Of The Five Senses on December 21.
After some crazy Collisions in Mumbai, Chennai and Bangalore (pics), the adidas Originals Collision, a showcase of street and hip-hop culture, moves to Delhi this weekend with a takeover of the Garden Of The Five Senses on Saturday, December 21. The past three editions of Collision have seen local b-boy crews take to the floor, alongside live graffiti, skateboarding and some excellent music. Check out a video from the Mumbai edition of adidas Originals Collision for a good idea of what went down.
Here’s what’s going down at the Garden Of The Five Senses this Saturday. You can register to be part of the b-boy battles, or the skateboarding and BMX workshops at Collisions here. Delhi b-boy He-Ra of the Tiny Drops crew and B-Boy Hotshot will judge the battles, and winners bag adidas Originals merch worth Rs 35,000. Delhi graffiti writers Zine, Elf, Komet and Faps will be onsite with their cans, decorating the venue with some unique art, and of course, you’re invited to join. Delhi’s original dons, the Reggae Rajahs, are hosting the night, and they definitely know how to get a great party going. After 7pm, the music kicks off with sets by the Reggae Rajahs, Pentagram and Delhi’s Koocha Monster NUCLEYA, who got the crowd up on their feet at the Mumbai edition of Collisions.
“This is something no one else does,” said DJ Sa, who played the Chennai edition of Collisions. “So far, no one has brought a concept that’s so… street, to a club space or anything like it. In Chennai we saw all the four elements of hip hop colliding in one place. There were MCs, there were b-boys, graffiti and rappers. Chennai hadn’t seen this before and they loved it, so I think Delhi should definitely be anticipating it highly.”
