The Line-up 2012
Sideburn, The Beth Edges, human beatbox stars Robeat, Dharni, Camero, RoxorLoops and BeeLow as well as the Radio Energy DJs will rock the Myspace stage
When seventy of the world's best bouldering athletes from twenty different countries compete in Stuttgart's Porsche-Arena for the adidas ROCKSTARS title on the 10th and 11th of August, they will not only be heated up by an enthusiastic crowd.
Climbing meets Music is the motto of the event and several music acts will perform throughout the day.
The Swiss rock band Sideburn has certainly the most difficult exercise, as they will accompany the adidas ROCKSTARS final of the top 6 men and women live on Saturday evening and they have to adjust their music program to the competition flow. Not an easy task for a band, which is used to take center stage. But with 20 years of experience under their belt, Sideburn are looking forward to the new challenge. The quintet opened for some of the biggest acts in the industry, like Def Leppard, Kiss, Krokus, Gotthard, Dio, Doro, Motörhead, Thin Lizzy, Uriah Heep or Meat Loaf and their song “Six feet under” was picked by 20th Century Fox Studios to be featured in an episode of the Fox Network TV show “24” with Kiefer Sutherland.
Sideburn create that classic rock sound that is guaranteed to make you pump up the volume, dust off that air-guitar, tap your feet and, most importantly, push the climbers to grow beyond their limits in the final. The Swiss band even wrote and recorded a special theme song with climbing lyrics for the event.
On Saturday afternoon within the scope of the GORE-TEX Be a Rockstar amateur contest, adidas ROCKSTARS hosts a top-class beatbox battle featuring five of the world's best human beatboxers: Robeat and Bee Low from Germany, Dharni from Singapore, Camero from Switzerland and RoxorLoops from Belgium all cultivate different beatbox styles, but they have one thing in common: they are their own band! Their mouth and vocal cords produce hard techno beats, fast drum-and-base rhythms, soft hip-hop sounds, jazz freestyles and perfectly imitate all kinds of sounds and noises.
Right after the amateur contest the Austrian newcomer band The Beth Edges will get the crowds into the right mood for the final, while the route setters are preparing the problems for the 12 finalists. Influenced by many great acts of the current Indie and guitar hype The Beth Edges produce catchy tunes through a signature combination of salacious four-to-the-floor beats, retro guitars and easy-going vocals.
After the adidas ROCKSTARS 2012 have been crowned, the music acts have their own sporty challenge - the Myspace Music Battle. Sideburn, the beatboxers and the Radio Energy DJs challenge each other to a duel with instruments, vocal cords and cd players.
Climbing and music fans will be entertained for 10 hours, from 13h00 to 23h00. Tickets for Saturday, the 11th of August cost 10 Euros (standing room) or 12 Euros (seat) and are available under Easyticket.de.
