The festival is not just a big celebration of music but is also a master-class on how to make the music. Hence, aside from the lit AF live performances, fire dancers and cool beats, you will also get to enjoy panel discussions and workshops.

The festival will bring an international line up of male and female rappers, DJs, breakdancers and graffiti artists. The live performances will include acts from regional and Indian artists such as 7 Bantaiz, Dopeadelicz, Bombay Lokal and Sun J & Khatarnaak Hiphop Collective.
