The 13 Most Important Things That Happened At Red Bull Culture Clash 2016

Where New York-based dancehall label Mixpak was crowned victorious.

June 17, 2016

The 2016 Red Bull Culture Clash was quite possible the rowdiest yet. In the end, Dre Skull's Mixpak team — including Popcaan and Spice — was crowned victorious, but it was a close race. This year's soundclash saw Mixpak go head to head with Taylor Gang, Eskimo Dance (a.k.a. Wiley and a slew of grime's major players), and UKG Allstars. There were appearances from Stormzy, Lethal Bizzle, Joey Bada$$, and Flirta D, and dubs for days. Here's a quick recap of the night's biggest highlights.
