The festival kicks off Friday and goes through Saturday.

Highlights for educational workshops on Friday, December 14, 4-6 p.m. will include a DJ workshop by the innovator of the turntable ‘scratch’ Grand Wizard Theodore; a Hip-Hop dance workshop by Rocky Steady pioneer Popmaster Fabel; and a young women’s leadership workshop led by Da Urban Butterflies. Workshop registration is now open at www.sxsbx.org.

“More than anything we wanted to have a festival that represents hip hop culture and not the rap music industry,” Rodrigo “RodStarz” Venegas, of the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective, told the NY Daily News.
