During the leadoff bash Rob Swift of the famous The X-Ecutioners crew demonstrates how real turntablism works. From France Fulgeance comes around to melt Disco and Funk with pure Hip Hop energy. Also all Dubstep devotees will go crazy when Darkstar and Ghostpoet, two of the most promissing new faces of the UK bass scene, visit Vienna for the first time. Furthermore lots of local artists such as Dorian Concept or The Clonious don't miss the chance to play a home match.
Beside music also exhibitions, movies, and installations enrich the Festival. For all Hip Hop heads the exclusive premiere screening of Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest is a must. Especially because it shows some unseen found footage material of one of the best rap crews in Hip Hop history.
