ABOUT BACK TO THE CITY
This unique youth event has grown into the largest public display of both commercial and underground hip-hop in South Africa, presenting a day of live music, street art, break-dancing, art installation, skateboarding, film, street fashion, gaming, speakers and panel discussions.
The day began with an educational summit offering an exchange of knowledge from industry gurus working within the media, advertising and music business arenas. The aim of these workshops was to effectively empower artists with as much knowledge to enable them to efficiently administrate their career and brand growth. The aim was to utilize the culture as a tool to encourage critical thinking, social change and unity while empowering communities through media, arts, education and independent initiatives.
This year celebrates the seventh annual youth festival "BACK TO THE CITY" featuring a variety of artists and representing the pinnacle of artistic expression from South Africa. From the daytime events to the evening performances, this is one time that the inner city comes alive with true freedom of expression, providing a destination for hip-hop fans, artists and industry personnel to converge and celebrate the experience of hip-hop and youth culture.
