Octavian, IAMDDB, Ms Banks & more announced for Body&Soul at stage in collab with Hennessy

Adam Fogarty aka MathMan will be curating the Hennessy and Body&Soul Presents The Midnight Circus Stage on Friday June 21.

 

A line-up of Irish and international hip hop acts, specially curated by MangoXMathman collaborator Adam Fogarty, will take place at Body&Soul down at  Ballinlough Castle this year.

“Over the years some of the biggest artists have name-checked Hennessy in their lyrics from Tupac and Biggie in the 90s to Drake and Kendrick Lamar more recently,” reads a press release. “The birth of hip hop 40 years ago in the south Bronx gave voice to a generation that felt they had none and it became the vehicle of choice for young people to express themselves, a genre which is still alive right now. Ireland’s journey with hip hop began in the very late 80s with a group of pioneers who unashamedly wore their Irishness in every bit of their art and today it has grown into one of the country’s best-loved genres. Delving into his unsurpassed knowledge of the Irish and international scene, Mathman has curated a stage featuring some of today’s best-known and up and coming hip hop and rap artists.”

UK artists already announced include Manchester’s IAMDDB, BBC Sound 2019 winner Octavian and South London rapper Miss Banks. Mango X MathMan and Belfast trio KNEECAP are also on the bill, with more to be announced.

Following its takeover of Hen’s Teeth last summer, the Hennessy Sound Lounge will also return, this time to Body & Soul. It’s your chance to meet some avid record collectors and listen to a selection of their music on a proper soundsystem and hear how these records shaped their lives.
