The vocal music convention is a community based side-event for talented artists who are not participating in the world championships. This collaborative event is dedicated to reviving the global mouth music scene after the Covid-19 pandemic put it on hold. The primary focus is on connecting creative musicians who share a passion for the art of human beatboxing and building an active community. The participating solo artists and groups will demonstrate the diverse possibilities of vocal percussion, including its combination with instruments and electronic devices. The convention concept, which serves as the kick-off event of the Beat Box Expo, will take place on 2nd August 2023, at the Gretchen Club in Berlin. We anticipate the attendance of beatboxers and a cappella artists from all over the globe who will rock the microphone on stage.
