Camden Council is presenting a family friendly and engaging one day event to celebrate, educate and reflect on the impact of hip hop culture over the last 50 years and its roots in Camden.
Local Hip Hop DJs from the Dig It Sound System will start the party with a family fun warm up. Following this, a lineup of homegrown established and new talent will perform, showcasing spoken word, DJing and dance, which will engage us on a journey through the decades revealing Camden’s rich history and links to this genre of music.
