Taking place this September 1st, gear up for Hoodstock festival and its eclectic rap line up returning to London's Colour Factory.
Rising from the ashes of East London’s much-loved Fuzzbrain Studios after it tragically burnt down, Hoodstock Festival has become a supportive vessel for the capital’s most talented artists. In partnership with DICE, the event’s eclectic lineup of hardcore rap promises to enrich its community and empower local performers.
Ticket sales go towards the Hoodstock Fund, which offsets young people’s access to the studio and subsidises their recording costs, ensuring they can continue to shape the capital’s positive music culture. Founded in 2020, the scheme has been used by over 40 artists from 15-25 years old. Providing support for musicians at any point in their careers, Hoodstock’s commitment to the next generation of superstars differentiates it from other London festivals. It also supports a range of important shows, like Blvckbox Entertainment presents, Restless Basslines and Cyberdance.
Keeping a DIY ethos at its core, the festival’s third edition promises to be bigger than ever before. Stay tuned for pending lineup announcements.
