Brooklyn Hiphop Festival
The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival produced by the Brooklyn Bodega is a celebration of Hip-Hop music and culture. Their aim is to highlight Hip-Hop’s legacy as an agent of artistic progression, community building and social change. They do this by producing a variety of events from musical performances, Family Day, film screenings, gallery shows and more.
The Festival is more than a concert or outdoor fair. It is more of a family reunion for lovers of this great culture. People come from Flatbush to Berlin to enjoy the Brooklyn sun. Their hope is to produce a world class event in Brooklyn where the best and brightest travel to Brooklyn. As well as celebrating Hip-Hop culture they want to establish Brooklyn as a worldwide destination. They also endeavor to support local artists from Brooklyn and the NYC area while not creating an insular event for, by and in Brooklyn.
