Far from the dingy basements of London, Hip Hop is getting a new home this July. Fresh Island’s Festival, running from the 15th- 17th of July on Zcre beach, is set to be the place for all things Hip Hop, RnB and Rap this summer. And the best bit- we’ll be there!

With awesome headliners like Action Bronson, Danny Brown, Pusha T and Joey Bada$$ it’s almost easy to forget the excitement of actually partying on a beach! Sun, Sea, Sand (well, pebbles) and most importantly SKEPTA. Growing up in North London, SKEPTA is probably most famous among lesser Grime fans for his 2014 Anthem “That’s Not Me”. He is most definitely one of the most hotly anticipated artists playing the festival, and we’ll be sure to be up front.

Other goals for the weekend include a selfie with “Tim Westwood”, seeing Migos perform “Versace” whilst donning Versace (or similar knockoff) and attending as many boat parties as possible. Yes, that’s right Boat Parties. And word on the street is, it’s well worth peeling yourself from bed to make these (and the pool parties).We will definitely be taking our sore heads to catch Ladylicious on Thursday 16th.
