As the festival’s name suggests, Beyond the Beat’s core program and mission revolves around unveiling the hiphop culture in a wider context. Through a multi-disciplinary program – live performance, dance competitions, panels and film – we’re looking to provide context on the development of hip-hop’s music, culture and cross-overs over time. 

This year’s overarching theme places focus on the rich music and dance culture of the African continent and its diaspora. The free program consists of a double concert by Joya Mooi and an outdoor program with a power talk with Lynnee Denise and Niki Awandee, a film screening of The African Cypher, “Stand For Something” All Styles & Afro Dance Battle, an exclusive panel discussion on the topic of inclusivity within the music industry and ending the festival with the videoclip afterparty ‘Golden Age of Hip Hop’. All that right here; in the vibrant city that’s called Rotterdam.

The festival 'Beyond the beat' is part of Rotterdam Street Culture Weekend and made possible by Rotterdam festivals.
