Hosted by MC and rap artist Juice Aleem and Blaoo (Sweedish Hip-Hop Historian), we kick off the weekend festival in the Patrick Centre with a dynamic conversation and Q&A that explores Birmingham’s independent and vibrant contribution to global Hip-Hop culture, from its pioneering MCs, rappers, graffiti artists, word poets, producers and b-boy/girls, to the present day issues faced in developing the scene and artform in Birmingham and across the Midlands.
Leading speakers and performers from both the city and wider international stage, will be present on the evening including Prit, Nucleo, T-Kid, Poe One, Link, IMD, Bubbles and Sic – Nis among others.
You can also expect mini performances from Marso’s experimental lab and the ‘7 to Spoke’ winners from 2016, a rolling screening of ‘Girl Power’ exploring the female graffiti experience, PLUS DJ and Vijay sets by DJ Mantis and Nucleo.
Tickets need to be booked in advance!
