Art of Rap Music Festival tickets
Art of Rap Music Festival is a celebration of rap and hip-hop through the years. The annual festival brings back respected old-school hip-hop acts such as EPMD and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to the stage. As a traveling festival, Art of Rap is an opportunity for the younger generation to understand the roots of hip-hop and rap, and for the older fans to get nostalgic about the years gone by.
Art of Rap Music Festival history
The idea for the festival came about after Ice-T produced the documentary Something for Nothing: The Art of Rap in 2012. The documentary traced the roots of hip-hop and rap, which meant the legendary rapper had to get in touch with several respected old-timers, including EPMD. The documentary was a success, and Ice-T announced the inaugural festival edition in 2015.
The first Art of Rap Music Festival, held in California over a July weekend, featured such revered acts as Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick and Mack 10. Following the runaway success of the inaugural edition, the festival expanded to an eight-city tour. The first Art of Rap Music Festival tour included stops at Las Vegas, Hollywood, Chicago and Austin.
Art of Rap Music Festival live experience
The Art of Rap Music Festival is a marathon event, often lasting more than 8 hours, as one hip-hop legend after the other takes to the stage to entertain fans. The fans can expect a lot of interaction from the old-timers on stage, as well as comfortable seating and a happy, electric atmosphere as audience members croon their favorite choruses in sync with the artists.
