BIRD, HipHopHuis & The Notorious IBE proudly present: 𝐁𝐞𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐝 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐨𝐧 𝐅𝐫𝐢𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝟏𝟏𝐭𝐡 𝐨𝐟 𝐒𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫. As the festival’s name suggests, Beyond the Beat’s core program and mission revolves around unveiling the hiphop culture in a wider context. Through a multi-disciplinary program – live performance, dance competitions, panels and film – we’re looking to provide context on the development of hip-hop’s music, culture and cross-overs over time.
This year’s overarching theme places focus on the rich music and dance culture of the African continent and its diaspora. The festival is divided in a double concert by Joya Mooi and a free outdoor program consisting female powerhouses Lynnee Denise, Nikki Tsappos, the dynamic South African documentary The African Cypher, “Stand For Something” All Styles & Afro Dance Battle, an exclusive panel discussion on the topic of inclusivity within the music industry and ending the festival with the videoclip afterparty ‘Golden Age of Hip Hop’. All that right here; in the vibrant city that’s called Rotterdam.
