One of the organisers, Kristaps Veide shared that they are delighted by the opportunity to create a new hip-hop festival in Tallinn Street Quarter. This year, the global celebration of hip-hop culture's 50-year history, originating from the streets of the Bronx in the 1970s, is underway. Recognized as one of the most popular music genres worldwide, the special anniversary events are taking place in various locations, including the local scene.
Latvia holds a unique place for hip-hop culture, and the organizers strongly believe that it deserves a grand celebration that pays homage to all its elements, including rap, DJs, graffiti art, and breakdancing. As the evening progresses, the festival will reach its peak with vibrant parties hosted in multiple venues throughout the Tallinn Quarter, continuing until the early hours of the morning.
