Logan City Hip Hop Collective
28 Aug 2015 | Friday 5:00pm to 10:00pm
Join us in celebrating Logan City as a hub of creativity and talent
As part of the state- wide Queensland Multicultural Week celebrations, Access Community Services Ltd in association with BEMAC Presents: “Logan City Hip Hop Collective”.
A free event, celebrating Logan’s creativity and urban culture through a display of local talented hip hop artists, musicians and dancers; internationally renowned act, L-FRESH the LION, will head-line the event with his powerful presence and inspiring, thought- provoking hip hop lyrics inspired by soulful movement in U.S. hip hop of late 1990s/ early 2000s, and the love and respect of his own cultural and ancestral roots of the Sikh from Punjab, India.
“This is all about bringing together people who share a passion for hip hop and who believe in our community. I know from growing up in Logan that we have stories to tell: sometimes great; sometimes challenging; but always real and important. Too often these stories are told by those who don’t understand us. I’m excited to be part of both festival itself and program moving forward, because it will give us an opportunity to tell our stories, our way. And to do that with alliance L-Fresh the LION means it will echo right around the nation.”
Local Member – Jim Chalmers MP
L-FRESH The LION is renowned for his powerful presence, inspiring live shows and thought-provoking hip hop lyrics. In a short space of time, this Western Sydney artist has gone from underground community events and ciphers to national tours and major festivals. It speaks of an MC with a sense of purpose and self-belief.
