Paris Hip Hop Festival

Paris's greatest celebration of hip hop and urban music returns for a 10th edition, June 19-July 6

DR

Last year's edition of the Paris Hip Hop festival brought nearly 400 artists to some of Paris's best concert halls, and broadened the lineup to include a range of African artists. Given that the festival's done nothing but grow since its inauguration in 2005, it's hardly a surprise that the 2015 event is shaping up to be the best yet. We're especially looking forward to legendary American collective Wu-Tang Clan at Le Zénith on July 5th, and to French trio La Cliqua who will give a concert at Le Trabendo on July 1st — celebrating the 20 year aniversary of the release of their now mythical album 'Conçu pour durer'. You can get your tickets here.

The Paris collective Hip Hop Citoyens, who founded the festival, also offer fans the chance to try out their talents at workshops at La maison des métallos. But the festival isn't just about music. Past years have also seen dance shows and dance-offs, exhibitions, film screenings, open-air block parties and graffiti jams.
