The application phase for the Red Bull BC One E-Battle 2021 is now closed.
The Red Bull BC One E-Battle returns for its fourth edition on April 29 2021 and will run throughout May and June. The winning B-Girl and B-Boy will earn an all-expenses-paid trip to this year’s Red Bull BC One World Final in Gdansk, Poland. They'll also gain a place in the Last Chance Cypher to compete against all of the Red Bull BC One Cypher winners from around the world for a chance to claim an open spot in the Red Bull BC One World Final top 16.
Red Bull BC One introduced the E-Battle in 2018 as a way for any B-Boy or B-Girl from around the world to compete for a chance to go to the World Final. National cyphers take place in more than 30 countries, but the E-Battle is a chance for all breakers to try to make it to the Red Bull BC One World Final, regardless of whether they have a cypher in their country or not.
