Hip Hop: A Way of Life: Scratch and Spit

This weekend in Liverpool saw the Five Elements Festival taking place in Django’s Riff, Liverpool. This was a three day event with live breakdancing, djing, MCing and graffiti.

I went along to meet as many fellow hip hopper as possible, but also to get a flavour of what is happening with the Hip Hop scene in Liverpool. I am glad to say that while small, Hip Hop in Liverpool is quality. Everybody there, as either performers or audience was having an extremely good time and there was not a negative thing to be seen. Even when the breakers were battling it was good hearted and it was clear that all involved knew each other and enjoyed showing off their skills.

In terms of the work I am doing, this festival was an opportunity to show how much fun Hip Hop can be, and also to show that when people are doing their thing they’re all in it together.
