The champs of BC One 2018

The 15th edition of the Red Bull BC One World Final came back to the place where it all started – Switzerland. Zurich was an amazing host of an unforgettable three-day celebration of the dance at the Komplex 457, with the grand finale held at Hallenstadion which was completely sold out.

16 B-Boys and four B-Girls from all over the world took control of the dancefloor and delivered a performance without equal. All the battles where thrilling due to the high level of the contenders and many new faces that joined this years line-up.

The judges Benny, Tuff Kid, Junior, Taisuke and Wicket, did a fantastic job and pulled off the whole night without a single tie but many close 2:3 votes, which is a definite sign for a high-level competition.
