Going to Hip Hop International? Let us know! | Schedule + PacRim Videos

While the Olympics are going on in London, out in Las Vegas, another sort of World Championships are happening. It's the US Championships and the World Championships for Hip Hop International. Over the coming week, crews will compete in one of the largest crew choreography focused events in the World. We've already listed the crews competing in both levels of competition (US Junior, US Varsity, US Adult, US Megacrew, Intl Junior, Intl Varsity, Intl Adult, Intl Megacrew - note that lists may have updated since we posted them), and we'll be posting the results as soon as we find them.

If you're there please let us know what it's like! It's not like there can be any spoilers like with ABDC, so feel free to report results, as well as your impressions on the performances, the atmosphere, or anything really. Email any reports to

If you want more up to the date reports, our friends at Pacific Rim Video Press are tweeting as events go on, and will be posting interviews. Follow them on Twitter @pacificrimvideo. Check out their montages of the crew orientation from yesterday below, as well as another montage here. You may see some familiar faces, including Academy of Hype (and their affiliated family crews), SGBM, Soul Fresh Fam, Funk Beyond Control, and more.
