Ludacris vs Neon Trees

Red Bull Soundclash makes a return appearance to Atlanta and with it brings a new twist to the already unparalleled, live music conversation. Ludacris and Neon Trees will take to two outdoor stages simultaneously for the first time bringing an innovative clash of styles, sounds and creativity that takes “concert” to a whole new level.

Ludacris and Neon Trees will hit the stage at Red Bull Soundclash in a creative collaboration, a musical duel played out in stereo that blows minds. They will face off on opposite stages and play to a single audience. As each band lets it rip, two divergent styles and genres clash over the heads of the crowd. The sharpest tongue, the heaviest riffs and the hottest beats rule, with victory going to the band that dishes up the most sizzling and kickin’ performance.

The Talent

Known from the streets to the big screen, Ludacris is a star on multiple fronts - a Grammy Award winning hip-hop artist, movie star and once upon a time a radio DJ on Atlanta’s 97.5 (now Hot 107.9). Bringing comedy and entertainment to his rhymes has landed Ludacris onto the Top 10 Billboard’s Hot 100 several times and with celebrity collaborations such as 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes and Eminem- Luda is sure to put on a quite a show.

Purveyor’s of organic rock, Neon Trees from Provo, UT may be newbies to the national music scene-but don’t let that fool you- this “animal” foursome have opened for bands like The Killers and 30 Seconds to Mars. They know how to work the stage and better yet, the screaming fans.

The Battle

  • The Cover: where each artist plays their own take on the same cover song.
  • The Takeover: a collaborative round where one band starts playing one of their own tunes then the other group takes over mid-song to finish it out with their own flair.
  • The Clash: challenges the bands versatility- as they adapt their songs to the music genre of the DJ’s choice.
  • The Wild Card: the final round is all about surprises as each band brings a special secret guest to the stage to perform with them.

This show is all about shocking, exciting, and entertaining the crowd- because they are the ones who decide which group/artist takes the title of Red Bull Soundclash champion and names the artists worthy of bragging rights across the music scene.
