The 2nd Annual Weird City Hip-Hop Festival presented by Austin Mic Exchange and HE^RD Entertainment goes down on Sept. 18-19 in East Austin at Delta Millworks. Launched by Austin Mic Exchange and HE^RD in 2014, Weird City Hip-Hop Festival is Austin, TX’s first and only annual Hip-Hop conference/festival dedicated to providing local hip hop artists with opportunities to perform alongside nationally recognized emcees and to supporting the growing hip hop community in the Live Music Capitol of the World. The 2015 lineup will feature live performances by Jay Electronica, Danny Brown, Aesop Rock, Freddie Gibbs, Charles Hamilton and over 50 local artists. See the full lineup below.
In addition to two stages of live performances throughout the weekend at Delta Millworks, youth (aged 12-21) can experience the art and culture of hip hop first-hand through workshops, performances, and one-on-one mentorship at the Weird City Kid’s Camp. Participants will have their choice of learning opportunities in several areas, including: The Art of Emceeing, Breakdancing, Graffiti/Mural painting, Beat Production, Deejaying, and Recording.
