The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival Has A New Home Online

The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival (BHF) launches their new official site, and gear up for the 2nd Annual event.

February 1st –
will now serve as the online
for the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, providing daily
updates as well as artist and ticket information.
Fans can also sign up for the Brooklyn Hip Hop
Festival newsletter which will provide mobile updates
via text and email. “The Bodega site is going to be a
useful tool to help promote the Festival before and
after the event. We are also going to be using some
new technology that will reshape event marketing,”
says Alma Geddy-Romero, Festival Organizer. The
2nd annual event is set to take place on June 24th,
2006. Announcements of a new venue and
performers for 2006 will be announced in the next
few weeks.

The BHF is a free event, celebrating Hip Hop music
and culture in New York’s most beautiful borough.
While the event features Brooklyn-based artists, the
mission of the BHF is to showcase the best of Hip
Hop and to highlight the borough of Brooklyn as one
of the country’s premier cultural destinations. The
2006 venue for the event will be announced
shortly. “We’ve been working on finding a more
permanent home for the BHF for a while now,” said
Geddy-Romero. “I think we’ve found a place that will
grow with the Festival as the years go on, and
provide a perfect backdrop for the event.”
Organizers promise to provide a wide variety of
programming from straight up Hip Hop to Funk, Soul
and Jazz. “We want to keep it fresh, a show that
you can bring your kids to, and enjoy a day of sun
and Hip-Hop culture in BK,” said Wes Jackson,
founder of Room Service Productions, the producers
of the event. Over 1,200 spectators enjoyed the 1st
Annual Festival that featured performances from
Brand Nubian, Little Brother, Rhymefest, Leela James,
and more.

The BHF is produced by Room Service Productions,
The Brooklyn Brewery, and Seven Heads
