The result is a long weekend of 50-60 programs varying from music performances, dance battles, dance shows, workshops, talkshows, film, photography and art. In recent years the number of typical festival facilities such as a culture market, creative space and a festival food court has been growing. Making the IBE a unique event in the worldwide Hiphop and urban dance world.
The 15th edition of The Notorious IBE takes place at 1,2 August in the city of Heerlen. On the 31st of July the festival unofficially kicks of with a Block Jam and pre parties in the city center.
