Boost Mobile Hook Up Tour 2
NZ Hip Hop Heavyweights join forces for The Boost Mobile Hook Up Tour 2
Last year the Boost Mobile Hook Up Tour exploded onto the NZ hip hop landscape bringing together the greatest line-up of hip hop acts the country had ever seen. Now in its second year, Dawn Raid and Boost Mobile join forces once again to bring you the biggest hip hop names in Aotearoa touring 15 towns and cities around the country.
The results are in and since the last Hook Up Tour in March 2004, the local hip hop scene has had 5 debut #1 singles and has created some of the biggest new names in the NZ music scene.
Leading the way with Hip Hop Heavyweights Savage, King Kapisi and Deceptikonz, this year’s tour boasts an impressive lineup including Fast Crew, DJ Sir Vere, Mareko, Dei Hamo, Misfits of Science and Adeaze (with full live band).
This year the tour also combines the key elements from the 4 corners of hip hop with The Disruptive Crew, Askew and the Disruptiv All Stars taking their unique style of street art and breaking around the country.
Boost Mobile Brand Presence Manager Suzanne Wilson says “We are really excited to launch another Hook Up Tour this year. Following on from the huge success of last year’s tour it was a no-brainer to hold a second tour. And it’s just got bigger and better - with a massive lineup of the best hip hop artists in the country. “
“The Hook Up Tour is part of our ongoing strategy of supporting NZ music,” says Wilson. “It is a way of giving communities around the country the opportunity to experience an event of this nature which ordinarily they may not get the chance to do.”
The tour kicks off in Christchurch on 15th April, then heads to Invercargill and back up to Auckland stopping off at 15 towns along the way.
This year’s tour has been refined and the shows will include a huge sound system, amazing audio visual stage props, skate board ramps, graffiti art, break dancers and local emerging talent. As Brotha D says “The best just got better!!”
So don’t miss it - the Boost Mobile Hook Up Tour 2 will be turning the music realm upside down as it sets another new precedent in Hip Hop.
