Nearly 11,000 fans from all over the world packed a lot on 4th and Colorado in downtown Austin for what turned out to be an unforgettable night at Red Bull Thre3style.
Seven renowned party DJs and two hip hop acts, including Z-Trip, LL Cool J, De La Soul, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Q Bert, Switch, Mick Boogie, DJ-R and DJ-M Squared, and DJ Platurn, proved that everything is indeed bigger and louder in the heart of Texas.
“Getting on stage in front of a packed house of screaming fans and surprising them all…as well as collaborating with Zach (Z-Trip)…made this a performance I will never forget. I love the energy here, the people. It was a special night,” said LL Cool J backstage following his performance.
Red Bull Thre3Style is an innovative concept that gives highly skilled DJs a platform to battle, perform, gain notoriety and express themselves in a party atmosphere. Each act performs to win the crowd’s favor and each set MUST contain at least three different musical styles.
While this event was an all-star showcase and not officially part of the 2011 tour, more than twenty Red Bull Thre3Style US Qualifiers will take place this year.
