Tech Styles International – THE ULTIMATE HIP HOP EVENT – is returning to Kala Sangam this November!

Tech Styles brings together the best Bgirls, Bboys & Crews from across the country for an incredible weekend of events and activities!

This year sees the Bgirls of Bradford taking centre stage to show their amazing breakin skills along with the Bboys. We also have workshops, performances and the battles! Dancers will be joined by special guests, local musicians and there’ll be beats from the best DJs around.

Tech Styles is an all ages event that is guaranteed to be an amazing experience whether you come alone, with friends or the whole family.



: Kala Sangam, St. Peter’s House, 1 Forster Square, BD1 4TY
THE HIP HOP COLLECTIVE: Friday, 1st November: 7pm onwards
BATTLE DAY: Saturday, 2nd November: 12:00-19:30


We received an amazing response from our first Hip Hop Collective night last year at Tech Styles 5, so join us on the Friday as we celebrate the Bgirls in Bradford and the impact female breakers have had on the community. Alongside inspirational talks, live music and cyphering, there will also be live street art being created by our specially selected Graffiti Artists! After all of this, we will finish the night with a big jam session as our DJs provide us with the banging beats! Although this year is about highlighting the Bgirls in Bradford & Women in Hip Hop, we want everyone to come through and represent!

Featured artists:

Guest Speaker 1: Bgirl Narumi (Japan)
Guest Speaker 2: Bgirl Fox (Bradford, UK)

UNDER 16s 2v2

(participants aged 16 can enter)

With every Tech Styles, the level in this category increases! Last year saw the Dragon Assassins (Bgirl Eddie & Bgirl Terra) come storming through the battles to take the win! The young guns in the UK are on the rise, will the Dragon Assassins return to try and take the win or will we crown new winners this year?!
