DERT Rapper Tournament 2020 #DERTnotDERT

On the weekend of Saturday 4th – Sunday 5th April 2020, the DERT-not-DERT rapper tournament was unleashed into our homes.

Rapper teams from across the country, and over the pond, were planning to compete at DERT 2020 in Lincoln, hosted by Whip the Cat Rapper and Clog. Unfortunately, along with so many other events, DERT 2020 has been cancelled. Instead, we had DERT as it has never been seen before (and hopefully never will be again!) with everyone able to enjoy it from the safety of their own homes. Teams were invited to enter some long-distance competitions under the following categories:

DERT 2020 Tower Ravens
Tower Ravens solo
  • Solo Rapper
  • Stepping
  • Music
  • Character
  • Buzz Factor
  • Best use of Steep Hill (a steep hill in Lincoln – does what it says on the tin)

These categories were very much open to interpretation, and there were many inventive and surprising entries!
