La Villette celebrates Street Culture

Well known for urban culture, La Villette is host to a Street Festival this coming May 30 through June 1st. All forms of street culture will be represented: dance, art, fashion, food. Originating from hip hop, the festival now embraces all current forms of urban culture, as a testimony to an everchanging society. For 3 days, the Grande Halle will be home to free hip hop dance workshops (as well as break, popping, etc…), as well as beatbox, skate board, or the art of movement with the participation of the Yamasaki. Food trucks will be found on site to allow hungry strollers to continue their walk among Street Culture fashion booths, or go admire the 2 graffiti frescos produced for the festival. Two highly anticipated concerts featuring greats of American hip hop will take place on May 30 and 31: the stage will welcome Public Ennemy, as well as KRS-One and Pusha-T. Among other animations, you will also be able to enjoy dance battles.
