»Rap has changed, we have remained«. On July 30, 2022, the Tapefabrik Festival celebrates its tenth edition. When the 16 bars roll over head-nodding beats in Schlachthof Wiesbaden, the German hip-hop underground is not far away. Forty artists grab the mic, subwoofers breathe boom bap and trap beats on four stages. The crème brûlée of beat culture grins from the lineup for the true school reunion, from Ebow to Figub Brazlevic to Donna Savage, Cora E. and Morlockk Dilemma.
Already Friday for warm-up
Also there: newcomers to the scene like lhan 44, Spindyrella and LIZ. Those who don’t have their graffiti cans clacking in anticipation can chug to Sylt with the 9-euro ticket – or chill in the new »outdoor area of the extra class«. By the way: Because yesterday was already tomorrow, early heads and OGs check their tickets for the warm-up on Friday in the Kesselhaus. Kwam E., Tom Hengst and Ace Tee will be freestyling at the Cypher.
