Dumile goes Back To The City.
#BTTC or in its full name, Back To The City is an event that gathers a variety of the “dopest” Hip Hop acts around. Represent teamed up with Dumile Mposula who tip-toed his way around the festival to bring us in his own words, the low down of the #BTTC event.
The Back To The City Hip Hop Festival has grown into a hugely successful event since its inception in 2006. Attendance figures have increased from the initial 3500 to 15 000 last year. The festival features artists representing the pinnacle of artistic expression from South Africa and has grown into the largest public display of both commercial and underground hip hop in South Africa.
The 2013 event was no disappointment. From graffiti artist spray-painting Newtown walls to B-boys doing their thing on the Redbull stage, all of Hip Hop culture was on display, it was a true haven for Hip Hop lovers all over the country. The artist lineup featured Maxhoseni, Tumi from Tumi and the Volume, Siya Shezi, Zuluboy, H20, iFani and Proverb to name a few.
The surprise act from the United States, EMC2 also had fans going crazy. All in all, this year’s Back To The City festival was amazing and I’m sure 2014 will only be better.
