Weird City Hip Hop Fest 2015 as it was originally planned did not come to fruition. The fest suffered some setbacks that unfortunately meant that we had to reorganize and make a new plan. Since the fest has always been about promoting local artists and bringing together the hip hop community in Austin, we’ve reworked it around an amazing line-up of local acts at Spider House Ballroom. And as a bonus I’ve made a mix that includes a bunch of them for you to listen to as the fest gears up. Details of the fest are below. It’s an insane value, all the money goes to the artists, and you should come. Get all the info here.
