The party goes down September 27 at South Boston’s Artists for Humanity EpiCenter, and spotlights the city’s blossoming hip-hop scene. The lineup is stacked, with performances by Cousin Stizz, Michael Christmas, Brockton collective Van Buren (Luke Bar$, Lord Felix, Jiles, Meech, Saint Lyor and Ricky Felix), DJ duo Bearly Yvng (Big Bear and Yvnng Paul), and Providence DJ/producer Where’s Nasty.
Beantown Uprising also features a build-out and exclusive merch from Boston streetwear and sneaker outlet Bodega.
“Over the last few years, Boston has emerged as a cultural hub to be reckoned with as several artists began to make a name for themselves that translated beyond the local community,” Red Bull writes. “At the forefront of this is performer and hometown hero Cousin Stizz, one of the first to rise out of the city to a national audience.”
