New York City’s largest Hip-Hop cultural event, the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, has been going strong since the start of the week! The big week-long show got off the ground last Monday night, July 10 at 6 PM, and it’s just going to keep getting more and more intense until this Sunday, July 16, when the festival wraps up at 8 PM.
Established in 2005, The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is New York City’s largest Hip-Hop cultural event that showcases the positive aspects of Hip-Hop culture by highlighting Hip-Hop’s legacy as an agent of artistic progression, community building, and social change. In addition to musical performances, the Festival offers a number of activities for the audience, including: panel discussions, exhibitions, parties, an award show, and a family-friendly block party. The Festival is more than a concert or an outdoor fair. It’s a family reunion for lovers of this great culture.
