Whether you know it as Beatboxing, vocal percussion, or vocal gymnastics, the sounds some people can make with their mouths are pretty awe inspiring, and, quite frankly I don’t know how they do it!!
The annual Vauxhall Beatbox Championships celebrate all things beatboxing, and is hoping to be back bigger, and better than ever this year. The competition features regional heats up and down the country, culminating in a grand final in London, where the ultimate winner could walk away with the main prize of a brand new black Vauxhall Corsa SXi! Just imagine the shiny metallic paint, alloy wheels, air conditioning, and of course you behind the wheel! But enough with the dreaming; if you think you’ve got what it takes to be this years beatbox champion, then it’s time to sharpen up your beats, rhythms, and vocal tricks, and enter the competition!
Heats kick off on the 19th February, and will run through until the grand final in June. First place in each heat will win through to the final automatically, with the second and third places entering a final wildcard round. All the winners from the heats and wildcard rounds will then go through to the grand final. With each event also featuring exclusive guest appearances, and crew style beatbox battles which you can enter, it’s sure to be an exciting contest!
Although registration for Midlands and Southeast heats has now closed, there’s still time to enter the remaining heats, or if you’re a beatbox fan, buy tickets for the shows.
