Latvian hiphop fest deemed a success

From June 30 to July 2, the second hip-hop festival "Straume" ("Flow") took place in Līgatne, in the creative quarter "Zeit", whose program included artists of different generations and performances specially prepared for the festival.

Since the beginnings of hip-hop in Latvia at the end of the nineties, three generations of rappers have grown up, all of whom were present at this year's "Straume" – heard in a total of 12 performances from both established acts such as the legendary Ozols and Gustavo to newcomers and lesser-known performers such as Xantikvariats, Wiesulis and Ods. 

Next year's festival has already been confirmed for the same location on July 5 and 6, 2024. Meanwhile, you can get in the mood by enjoying this specially selected playlist showcasing Latvian hiphop talent, if you happen to use Spotify.
