Very often we’ve been asked which jams are the best ones and worth spending your hard saved money on. Info about the big events is usually easy to find but many times the smaller more underground jams with good cyphers and party vibe are the ones we enjoy the most. Here is a few recommendations from us for this year. Of course there are many other ones as well but these one made a really positive impact for us last year.

-Yalta Summer Jam 12-16.7.2017, Yalta Crimea, Russia

One of the best jams we’ve ever been to for sure! Almost a week long jam in a nice holiday spot with a friendly block party vibe. It felt like nobody was there to show off or just to win the competitions but to have a great time. Cyphers, battles, parties and chilling at the beach! Nearest airport is Simferopol if you consider going!

-The European Concrete Jam 1.-3.9.2017, Lausanne Switzerland

Guaranteed Amjad quality! Cyphers, battles, parties, chilling at the beach! The vibe in Lausanne is always on point. After the cyphers pretty much the whole jam jumps into the Lake Geneva where the view is like from a painting!

-Real Deal 17.6.2017, Oslo Norway

Ruff and rugged concrete cypher jam in an outdoor skate park. Chill block party vibe and nice cyphers guaranteed! Can’t go wrong with an afterparty on a boat!

-Puerto Rock Steady 19.-22.5.2017, Isabela Puerto Rico

Crazy Legs is really spoiling people with the line up this year: Bahamadia, Nice N Smooth, Talib Kweli, DJ Statik Selektah and so on! Nice holiday spot on the beach with the possibility of surfing. Jam session was on an outdoor basketball court with the Frienemies battle concept where everybody battles everybody. Atmosphere was on point!

-Just Jam 20.-22.10.2017, Newcastle UK

Organised by the Bad Taste Crew, a crew of Irish origin with a very similar approach and values in breaking as us. Theatre night, cypher day with the qualifiers and 2 vs 2 battles with a great atmosphere and a dope line up! Nice people, good vibes and parties!

Top picks from Finland if you ever want to come to cypher with us and see the scene in which we grew up. The scene is very friendly and welcoming!

-Flow Mo Anniversary 26.-27.5.2017, Helsinki

Flow Mo turns fifteen years this year so the party is going to be massive! It will go down for the first time in the legendary Tavastia club. List of guests keeps growing! NHB system in the battles but of course the cyphers and parties are the main thing!

-KPO Breaks 1.7.2017, Kuopio

A legendary Finnish cypher jam making a come back! The weekend starts with a bus from Helsinki to Kuopio and people are starting to get on the mood. In the jam we always cyphered like there’s no tomorrow and this year we have the same plan! Crazy afterparty is a part of the experience!

-Sade Festival, Helsinki

Rumors tell that this year’s SADE will go down in the end of August. The event gathers all the dance styles to jam, battle and party together. Quality guests and super soulful vibe!

-Break SM, usually in the beginning of the December, Helsinki

Gathers the whole b-boy and b-girl scene under one roof to see who are the top names in the game right now. Atmosphere is on point and Finnish people are always ready to cypher hard!
