Is Columbia ready for a Hip Hop Festival? This was the question asked to some of Columbia’s biggest and brightest advocates of the arts in a video interview on YouTube. The consensus is abundantly yes.
Non-Stop Hip Hop Live is presenting Columbia's first family-friendly hip hop festival, Love, Peace, & Hip Hop, on Saturday, April 13.
A hip hop festival of this magnitude has never been done before in the Capital City. Bringing live performers, b-boy dance crews, dj’s, visual artists, and craft and fashion vendors, this festival will be held as one of the opening kickoffs in conjunction with Indie Grits. The event runs from 11 am to 5 pm at the corner of Laurel and Main Street in Columbia. Admission is $5 at the gate.
Aiming to attract locals and tourists, both young and old, Non-Stop Hip Hop Live has been promoting quality entertainment since 1998. Partnering with several nonprofits, including the South Carolina Victims’ Assistance Networks, Concerned Black Men of Greater Columbia, and Cooperative Ministries, the aim of the festival is to raise awareness on issues of the Midlands community like health care, domestic violence, education, employment/economic development and the arts.
