One of South Africa’s longest running and biggest hip-hop and street culture festival, Back To The City took place last Saturday on the country’s Freedom Day, as is the case every year.
It was a celebration of hip-hop and all its elements. On the main stage, the country’s biggest hip-hop artists alongside up-and-coming acts kept heads entertained throughout the course of the festival.
Back To The City will always be a unique festival in that the organizers make an effort to include the most popular acts to the most niche, all on the same stage. You don’t see that with many hip-hop events in the country.
Outstanding performances this year came from the likes of Stogie T, Riky Rick, YoungstaCPT, Moozlie, Nadia Nakai, Touchline, Cassper Nyovest, among many others. This year’s international headliner was EPMD, who entertained fans of the golden era. Below are some pics from the festival.
