Urbanistics Festival Report 2023 - 15/05/2023
On Saturday 13 May, a new edition of Urbanistics took place at Campus Nieuwland. During this free festival, young and old could dive into a wide range of urban disciplines from noon till nighttime. On the programme: workshops, breakdance & MC battles, performances by the Fanfakids, a street market and much more!
After a try out edition in 2022 in 2022, Urban Center Brussel once more gathered people of all ages around the universal values of hip-hop: creativity, self-expression and metropolitan diversity. Together with MetX, they joined forces with a number of partners from Flanders and Brussels for a richly filled programme.
There was a battle zone with breakdance & MC battles, which form the Brussels preselections of both regional (Legacy League – Breaking Flanders) and national competitions (MC Battles – End of the Weak). The street zone offered demos of Turntablism in collaboration with Bruxelles Cuts, graffiti by CNN and an urban market. And of course the Fanfakids demonstrated their percussion and breakdance skills throughout the festival site.
