Four crews bring New York City’s most celebrated parades together for an epic showdown

NEW YORK, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Red Bull Culture Clash will return to New York City on June 1st, 2024, in Brooklyn (1 Noble Street) for an unforgettable “Clash of the Parades”! The event will feature head-to-head performances from four crews, bringing A-list surprise musical guests, unreleased tracks, legendary remixes, and more.

Inspired by Jamaican sound system culture, Red Bull Culture Clash creates a massive musical battleground where four crews compete for the loudest response from the crowd. This year, Red Bull Culture Clash will celebrate the essence of New York with one of the city’s most iconic attractions — parades. The city’s most well-known community parades will team up with the best MCs, DJs, and producers from each crew to put on electric performances aimed at winning the crowd over.

Set against the New York City skyline, each of the crews will represent one of four New York City parades: Remezcla representing the National Puerto Rican Day Parade, Eastern Standard Times representing the Lunar New Year Parade, No Long Talk representing the West Indian Day Parade, and Papi Juice representing the NYC Pride March.

Hosted by Devon Halbal and Mel Ottenberg with DJ sets and refereeing by The Large, each crew will bring their parade to life on their own stage and face off in a four-round battle, bringing their best songs and fiercest competition to win the crowd’s favor over the other competing crews. Only one crew will emerge victorious as the Red Bull Culture Clash Champion — representing the parade with the best soundscapes in the city.

General admission tickets will be free to the public starting on April 23rd via, with the chance to gain early access by purchasing one of the four crews’ custom shirts on sale starting today. Crew merch can be purchased at:
