Yo, microphone check one, two what is this…
Love Peace & Hip-Hop is proud to announce FULL details for their 2016 programming. Entering our 4th year, Hip-Hop Family Day is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing cultural events in South Carolina. Hosting Artists such as Kool Moe Dee, Monie Love, Slick Rick and more – the annual event prides itself on bringing together the best of Hip-Hop’s past, present, and future. We are inviting all ages and races – white, black, brown, yellow, Puerto Rican or Haitian for a week of events that celebrate peace, love unity and having fun.
More than just music, The Festival celebrates all aspects of Hip-Hop culture including art, film, dance, politics, education, community activism, and more. All of which will be on display April 5-10th this year all around the beautiful City of Columbia.
Presented by The City of Columbia and WellCare Healthy Connections, Hip-Hop Family Day, now in its fourth year, brings the amazingly creative art form of hip-hop to Main street through hands-on art exhibits, educational activities, live music, dance performances and more. In addition to food, fun and music, Love Peace & Hip-Hop annually donates more soda than Dr. Pepper and water proceeds to two non-profit organizations that offer direct services to the community.
Attached is the full press release with more information on our 2016 Charity partners, our week of events leading up to and after Hip-Hop Family Day, full artists lineups and much much more!! And after the press release, you should check out the Phifer..
