The tag-team tournament is a contest format in which two beatboxing artists from the same country come together to form a duo and compete against other duos in general. The competition format begins with the elimination round, where each tag-team will present a 2 minute performance. Both competitors must create a simultaneous beat structure with clean drum patterns and various beat changes. All provided stage microphones will be set with a uniform sound level to guarantee a fair play competition.
We recommend that all participating tag-teams have a rehearsed concept to stand out from the other competing teams and present their best performance. Because all artistic duos must prove their worth to qualify to receive a high judging result in the total ranking. The order of occurrences of all tag-teams for the first round of the tournament will be drawn in advance by a raffle. All participants must show a 120 seconds elimination round on stage then. The jury committee will evaluate all performances according to the official competition criteria: precision, pattern, musicality, originality, performance. Then each tag-team will be awarded a rating of 1-10 points per judging criterion. The four tag-teams with the highest number of points will enter the semi-finals, where they must show and prove their skills in 2 x 90 seconds face-to-face battle rounds. The two winning duos of the semi-finals will advance to the final and fight for the title.
