Paris Hip Hop Festival
June 22-July 7
The 8th edition of the Paris Hip Hop festival brings nearly 400 artists to some of Paris's best concert halls, with open air and more traditional gigs. We're especially looking forward to The Pharcyde at Le Glaz'art's summer stage, Akua Naru at the Hangar in Ivry-sur-Seine, Dizzee Rascal at Cabaret Sauvage, and OFWGKTA at the Bataclan. The Paris collective Hip Hop Citoyens, who founded the festival, also offer fans the chance to try out their talents at improve workshops on the Berges de Seine. But the festival isn't just about music. There are also dance shows and dance-offs ('Beat Dance Content' at the Gaîté Lyrique), exhibitions ('True Hip Hop' by Mike Schreiber at the Cité de la Mode et du Design), film screenings, open air block parties and graffiti jams.
