Joey Bada$$, A-Trak, 2chainz, TNGHT & More in Rotterdam

Hip-hop culture is arguably the most pervasive and influential cultural movement in modern history. In celebration of the culture, Buma R’Dam Beats, an international conference and showcase festival, is about to kick off its third edition on the 15th, 16th and 17th of November in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Featuring performances by 2chainz, A-Trak, Joey Bada$$, Hudson Mohawke, Machinedrum, Lunice, Mar & Full Crate, workshops from legends such as Roger Linn (creator of the MPC drum machine), Cleveland ‘Clevie’ Browne, Riggs Morales (Shady Records), Jon Cohen (Cornerstone / The Fader), Om’mas Keith (Sa-Ra / Frank Ocean), and expert panelists from all corners of the industry and the globe, it’s clear that Buma R’Dam Beats is one of the leading European music platforms. The conference and festival is also the best opportunity to discover and network with the top music acts and entertainment entities coming out of The Netherlands.

Amsterdam- based music streaming site 22tracks has created a playlist of the artists who will appear at the festival. Go to the official website to get the full download as well as information how to reserve your tickets and hotel rooms.

About The Netherlands

The largest cities in the Netherlands — Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague — are in Holland. The country is The Netherlands, not Holland. Holland is just a region of The Netherlands, composed of Northern and Southern parts which count as two of the countries twelve provinces. The Netherlands lies on the North Sea, just north of Belgium and west of Germany. Some geography for dat azz.

The people speak Dutch (and English) and you can’t help but to notice there are lots of tall white folk. Amsterdam is the largest city as well as the capital. Mindless Americans are quick to associate Holland (by way of Amsterdam) with legalized drugs and prostitution. Dutch people think you are stupid, gross, and have never heard of Cannabis Cup, now in its 25th year. Believe that.

80 kilometers north of Amsterdam is Rotterdam, only 40 minutes by train. The city has a steely Pittsburgh kind of vibe, blue collar and often overcast. There is plenty of new construction as the city was bombed out heavily during WWI and the Dutch have rebuilt with a taste for modern, clean architecture. And guess what, they young generations love hip-hop, beats, DJing, and graffiti. Hip-Hop, the all-pervasive, most widespread and influential cultural movement in the history of modern civilization.
