Immerse yourself in hip hop culture at this multi-day affair
Entering its 9th year, the Festival aims to highlight Hip-Hop’s legacy as an agent of artistic progression, community building and social change. BHF ‘13 events will continue to reflect the full range of Hip-Hop culture, which spans music, film, academics, grassroots empowerment and more. We want to celebrate it all.
This year’s Festival takes place July 10th- July 13th, 2013.
The multiple-day format features a showcase of panel discussions, exhibitions, parties, award show and of course Performance Day, and the Family Day Block Party.
The Festival will kick-off on July 10th with its Bodega Education Initiative (BEI), a political forum at The Brooklyn Historical Society. On Thursday, July 11th our ‘Show & Prove’ series will conclude as the April, May and June Finalists square off to see who will open up the festivities on July 13th. The ever popular Salute The DJ (STDJ) series will return for 2013. This year the event will be incorporated into the Main Day on July 13th, as its own stage. Family Day will take place on the main Festival day, July 13th. All events are held throughout Brooklyn from Williamsburg to DUMBO.
