Unity Fest – Unity Charity’s annual flagship event and Canada’s only national Hip Hop festival – is back this year with a digital spin. Unity Fest /21 will be an action-packed, 3-part virtual event series featuring over 75 artists and youth from across Canada and representing all elements of Hip Hop, including dance, rap, spoken word poetry, graffiti, beatmaking, beatboxing, & DJing!
Reflective of the ongoing adversity brought on by Covid-19 and true to the resilience-building programs Unity offers to youth and artists year round, the theme of Unity Fest /21 is ‘Keep Ya Head Up’. The event series will pay homage to the spontaneity, grit, and authenticity of Canada’s irrepressible Hip Hop communities from coast to coast.
Tune in to support young, diverse artists and creatives from across the country, and don’t miss out on your chance to win audience member prizes!
