Information

An annual festival celebrating all things Hip-Hop. This FREE weekend event saw a range of talks and pop-up city centre performances as well as exciting new work produced by spoken word and graffiti artists and D/VJs as we threw open our doors and took over Southside along with The Old Rep.

Over the weekend, local street dance crews and the best of Birmingham’s b-boys and b-girls also battled it out for cash prizes, as Hip-Hop filled the streets and theatre spaces.

On the Sunday, Birmingham Hippodrome was ablaze with Hip-Hop sights and sounds with street food and market stalls.

B-SIDE Hip-Hop Festival is curated by the city’s many Hip-Hop talents – Break Mission, Dance Nuvo, Juice Aleem and Mickael ‘Marso’ Riviere.
