We’ve had months of brutal competition, but only one artist could be named the Grand Prize Winner of the ESPN “Main Event” Competition. DIVE, Konsept, Fight The Fear, FlyRydaz and Ciph Boogie competed for the chance to be named the ultimate victor and have their music featured on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights.
Now that the dust has settled, we are proud to announce that Brooklyn native Ciph Boogie defeated his opponents and earned a feature on Friday Night Fights‘ “Images Of The Year,” a segment that recaps the best boxing fights from 2012.
Here at OurStage, we’re all about healthy competition. That’s why we pitted 10 of our best artists against each other over the past few months to see which five would win on-air features on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights. Now, FlyRydaz, Fight The Fear, Ciph Boogie, Konsept, or DIVE will win the ultimate Grand Prize: a feature on Friday Night Fight’s “Images Of The Year.” Head over to our Facebook page and cast your vote by noon on August 12
The dust has finally settled after the face“off between the dubstep-influenced beats of Circuit Assassins and the anthemic rock of DIVE, leaving only one group standing in the July round of the ESPN “Main Event” Competition. New Jersey’s own DIVE has won the Grand Prize: a spot on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights that will feature their song “This Time.” But the fight’s not over yet. This month, all of the previous “Main Event” winners will return to battle it out one last time for a shot at being featured on Friday Night Fights’ “Images of the Year.”
Battles aren’t just for the boxing ring. This month, OurStage artists Circuit Assassins and DIVE will fight for placement on ESPN. The winning act will be featured on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights, moving one step closer to winning the Grand Prize: an additional feature on FNF‘s “Images of the Year.” So, will it be the dirty dubstep DJs of the Assassins, or the seasoned alt-rock of DIVE? Make sure you vote for your favorite on our Facebook page by July 31. May the best artist win!
Like the hits on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights, the monthly ESPN “Main Event” match-ups just keep on coming.
