Event Info


Brooklyn’s eight-day, multi-venue music, technology and entrepreneurship festival will get more inspiring this year with six teams of the nation’s top makers, builders and hackers competing in a 72-hour themed LIVE build at Williamburg’s McCarren Park. Starting with the topic announcement on Wednesday, June 12 and the creativity starting Thursday, June 13, Red Bull Creation’s pre-qualified teams of four will inspire, plan, produce and ultimately unveil a unique creation while festival goers look-on and interact.  The competition will finish during the Brooklyn Northside Festival’s free McCarren Park concerts taking place over the weekend, where winners will be announced and invited to share their 72-hour achievement with more than 5,000 people.

Six teams will compete in the 72-hour live build. Whether veterans from previous Red Bull Creation competitions or selected after the “TurBULL Encabulator” qualifying round, these teams have an incredible range of experiences from building a neon blow-up strength tester, a multi-screen storefront video display to an 80’s pop inspired, LED lit, sensor-powered flying creation. This will be a competitive and high-stakes year as reigning talent goes up against the new.
