Europe Biggest Hip Hop Festival “Splash” Going Down This Summer

Deep down in the heart of Germany is an island any sane hip hop head will want to be on less than three weeks from now; Splash Festival in Grafenhainichen. Going on its twelfth edition the festival has come a long way from the local event it once was back in 1998 and it has gotten more renowned each year since, now hosting a remarkable mix of old and new with several veterans who’ve been around since day one balanced by the up-and-coming and some huge names in the industry such as Missy Eliot, Nas,, Damian Marley, the French legendary group IAM, Raekwon and the Wu-Tang Clan. In short, the combination of its unique location and line-up make it a must see.

While most artists come from Germany, traditionally one of the largest hip hop nations in Europe, the festival hosts performers from all corners of the planet. An excellent chance for these guys to show Europe what talents they possess and open up our minds to new styles we otherwise would not have come across. Along with the diversity of its performers the venue has attracted numerous dedicatees of equally divergent backgrounds. Splash festival is not only the dopest hip hop venue on the continent, it is also a way of bringing together a community usually devided by all sorts of boundaries by means of the one thing we all have in common: real love for real hip hop music.

So if you’re into good times and great music, Splash can provide you with all of that Friday the 23rd of july and the weekend following. Wherever you’re from, it’s worth the trip.
