Here’s how you can attend the premiere of ‘The Truth About Irish Hip Hop’

On August 10, a new documentary called ‘The Truth About Irish Hip Hop’ will premiere, and you can be there…

 

Artists like Rusangano Family, This Side Up, Mango & MathMan, Fifth Element & Doublescreen and Jafaris are all set to feature in a new film about the origins of hip hop on the Emerald Isle, and its much-hyped rise in popularity, and quality, in recent years.

It’s directed and produced by Gavin FitzGerald and Mark Hayes (who you might know as the man behind Clear Haze).

“Ireland is renowned for its writers and poets so why hasn’t hip hop entered the cultural mainstream here? Well this documentary shows it happening before our eyes and the movement will only increase with the dedicated new wave of rappers breaking through the scene.”

The doc is premiering in The Sugar Club on August 10 with a panel Q&A hosted by District Magazine, as well as a load of performances from artists featured in the film.

Entry is free, but you must RSVP and entry is strictly first come, first served. Click here for more information and to claim your ticket.
