To anybody who attended the festival, any of our warms up and reunions, anybody who has handed out flyers and put up posters and even spreading the word across the internet . . . . All the Acts, Promoters, Artists, Site team, Friends & Family. ONE.
Last year saw the birth of something special in 2012. Finally the platform was built to showcase some of the finest talent the UK’s underground hip hop culture has to offer. Unifying like-minded people in one place at one time. The event will be looked at in future years to come as the level set, 2013 you will see us raise the bar.
We just want to show our gratitude and appreciation- the only way we know how!
