The Red Bull 3Style World Finals VIII came to an end on Sunday night in Kraków, Poland. After five days of battles featuring 24 national champions, it was Italy’s Damianito who took home the world championship trophy.
Damianito, who was selected as a wildcard, defeated five competitors in the final round. Belgium’s DJ Cross placed second while Canada’s Cam B rounded out the top three. Chile’s Diego Zapata, South Africa’s Ryan the DJ, and Japan’s RINA also competed. RINA participated as the other wildcard pick while the other DJs had won their respective qualifying rounds.
Each contestant was given 15 minutes to perform a set consisting of at least three genres. They were judged on originality (40%), skills (25%), song selection (20%), and crowd response (15%).
