Hiphop brings people together
This will be I Love Hiphop Festival’s 9th edition. Every year, the organisation witnesses the festival grow. I Love Hiphop attracted a record of 4000 visitors back in 2016. For the edition of 2017, the organisation expects an even higher number. “We have set up an amazing day and evening program. Both young and old will meet all components of hiphop through some awesome performances. It’s going to be a spectacular day, that’s one thing I’m sure of. Hip hop brings more people together every year. How great is that?” says Peter Oostinga, coördinator of The Hague Hiphop Centre.
