2nd Annual Elements Of Hip Hop Festival Announced
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DALLAS, TX – Monday, June 6th 2011
Poor Vida Productions and Rec Shop officially announce the second annual Elements of Hip Hop Festival, to be held at the Green Elephant in Dallas, TX on July 3rd. The festival features over 40 hip hop artists from all over Texas and Louisiana, with over 75 acts in total performing, including dance crews, graffiti artists, bands, and DJ’s. The event includes 2 stages of performing artists, live 3D graffiti installments, clothing and merchandise vendors, and free Bar-B-Que and refreshments for all in attendance.
"This year, we are taking the Elements festival to a whole new level. Last year was amazing, with over 400 people in attendance and 50 plus acts, but this year we have really fine tuned the whole process, and we are expecting to double the number of attendees” states Poor Vida spokesperson Joel Salazar.
Joel goes on to say “The Elements of Hip Hop refers to the cultural pillars of hip hop – The DJ, The MC, The BBoy, and The Graffitti Artist. These are the four icons that together, represent hip hop culture. With the Elements of Hip Hop Festival, we are trying to provide a platform that showcases each of these elements, and helps to bring these art forms back into the limelight, together. Another way to look at the event is that we are showcasing the individuals who make up the hip hop scene in our area, the elements of our culture. Both views are right.”
The official lineup for the festival can be found online at the PoorVida.com website, as well as on Facebook and other social media websites.
