Czech hip hop festivals[edit]

Hip Hop Kemp[edit]

Hip Hop Kemp is an international hip hop festival held every August in eastern Bohemia, Czech Republic. It is one of the biggest hip-hop festivals in Europe with an audience of 20,000.[1] The festival takes place in late August, usually in Festival Park, Hradec Králové, and has been running since 2002.

Originally staged at the areál koupaliště Cihelna in Pardubice, Hip Hop Kemp has become a meeting place for fans of hip hop culture from across the globe.[citation needed] Numerous stages and hangers have a full line up of local and international DJs as well as artists, breakdancers and graffiti artists over the course of three days.

To cater to a growing international audience, the promoters added English hosts to the main stage, to present the acts alongside the Czech language host. More hangers have also opened as stages offering other related genres such as grime, dubstep, and club music.

In 2013, artists included Big Daddy Kane, De La Soul, Kendrick Lamar, Lords of the Underground, Fashawn and Guilty Simpson.
