The Battle of the Year (BOTY) is the biggest breaking competition in the world, often referred to as the world cup of breaking. Since 1990 the competition has grown to an international high-quality event.

Battle of the Year is much more than a contest. BOTY became a week-long festival of the Hip Hop culture and feature different battles, showcases, workshops and much more to ensure the event stays true to its breaking roots and spreading Hip Hop culture to a larger public audience. This year BOTY is going to celebrate the 27th Anniversary and will be held for the first time in Essen (Germany).

Around the world BOTY has different qualifications for the international crew competition and the 1vs1 UNDISPUTED battle every year. For this reason the well-known BOTY Central Europe will take place again in Zurich (Switzerland). Additionally this year we have – the "BOTY Kids Format", the "1vs1 Undisputed Breaking", the "1vs1 Battle of the Kids" and the "Longest Move Record Competition" – in our program. Hereby you get all the important details about this event.
