Big Up 974

Street art, rap, street dancing… the best in international urban culture takes hold of Saint Denis on Reunion.

For its fifth edition, the famous Big Up 974 event celebrates urban culture and sports. Everything the ‘street' has to offer in trends is expressed over three days at the nerve centre of the ‘Festival village' in the heart of the City of Arts. At the helm of the festival, the Kreolide Association is dedicated to the promotion of Reunion street artists and intends to encourage artistic creation on the island by bringing together various stakeholders. A maximum of disciplines are seen here; dance, graffiti, the art of the dj, beatboxing, rap, spam, and urban sports of all kinds will be presented to the public by high-level participants, both local and international.

For the inauguration, which will take place at Palaxa (in the City of Arts), a concert will bring together onstage Tony Tso and French rappers Médine and Tiers Monde to compete with inspiring texts, boundless stage energy, and, no doubt, a certain amount of provocation.
