AFROFLUX is back at B-Side Hip Hop Festival this year with another FLUXCON on Saturday 10th June from 12noon Until 5.30pm At Birmingham Hippodrome. This year B-Side is celebrating 50 years of Hip Hop, and Afroflux will be bringing performance art, street art, martial arts, life drawing, comics and more.
Hip Hop is Afro Futuristic travel. The legendary MC and DJ Grandmaster Caz, told us that “Hip Hop didn’t invent anything. But it reinvented everything.”
Hip Hop didn’t invent rapping, or using decks, or, graffiti but it brought it all together, and reinvigorated street culture. You’re not supposed to use record decks like that, or beat box like that, or rap over someone else’s music, changing their composition, or spin on your head but Hip Hop has been home to remix culture. It was totally revolutionary, as far as music goes and people are still innovating, changing the world over.
Afroflux is about reinvigorating ourselves. It’s about revisiting, inventing, and re-imagining future ways of doing things.
It’s still different, and uniquely distinct, and evolving, and that’s perfect for Afroflux.
As always, we warmly welcome everyone of all ages to come along!
