The Movement Festival, in association with American Hip-Hop legend Nas, is coming to New Zealand. The Movement Festival places Grammy award winning Hip Hop heavyweights, with mixtape kings and local heroes in what’s destined to takeover as THE Hip Hop and Urban event in New Zealand.
Setting a new standard, Movement looks to the future of Hip Hop and Rap whilst still catering to a solid Hip-Hop foundation, thanks to the festival’s co-headliner and co-curator Nas. With more than 20 years in the business and often called the greatest rapper alive, Nas is an artist who needs little or no introduction. The gifted Queens, NY lyricist has come on board as a partner for the event, hand-picking a lineup of the best local and international artists, from Grammy nominees to up and coming mixtape kings and queens.
Nas’ authority over the genre makes him the ideal candidate to command Movement’s inaugural event, and his contribution will be ongoing as he will also be involved in an artistic and programming capacity for the 2014 and 2015 events.
Nas’ 2012 LP Life Is Good has been heralded as one of the best of his 11 album-spanning career. A potent collection of what he is best known for; amazing wordplay, intricately woven street stories and the best collaborations in the business it features guest spots from Rick Ross, Mary J Blige, Miguel, the late Amy Winehouse and many more. His catalogue boasts such certifiable Hip Hop classics as Made You Look, Hip Hop Is Dead, I Can, The Don, As We Enter (with Damian Marley), If I Ruled The World, It Ain’t Hard To Tell, The World Is Yours, One Love making him one of the most impressive figures in the genre ever.
Flanked by certified radio and chart bangers like the ARIA chart top 10 and MGMT sampling Opposite Of Adults, Mind Your Manners or Ray Charles, Chiddy Bang bring an overwhelming party vibe to Movement’s lineup.
Also on the bill is mixtape King Joey Bada$$ and Iggy Azalea, who are poised to set the world on fire with their new albums in 2013. Bada$$ is known for his throwback style, leaning more on beats akin to A Tribe Called Quest than many of his contemporaries but still with a modern twist – just check his triple j added single Waves - https://soundcloud.com/thesmokersclub/joey-badass-waves (from the incredible 1999 mixtape) or recent collaboration with DJ Premier. His star is fast on the rise but don’t let his recent beef with Lil B confuse style over substance, Joey Bada$$ is amassing an amount of fans the world over thanks to his blunted beats and quick witted rhymes.
Iggy Azalea will also appear on all dates on her first Australian tour since taking America and the world by storm. Her new single ‘Work’ out now on Universal is sure to tear up radio playlists and keep clubs burning post Summer. Check out the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zR6ROjoOX0 The Australian born MC and model is the first non-American to be featured on XXL Mag’s Freshman cover in 2012 and her debut studio LP ‘The New Classic’ is set to be released later this year.
NZ acts Homebrew, David Dallas and DJ Severe join the bill.
Homebrew’s self titled debut album premiered at #1 on the NZ Music Charts and saw them take home the NZ Music Award for Best Urban Hip Hop Artist in 2012.
Winner of Best Male Artist at the Pacific Island Awards, David Dallas is fresh off the back of his 48 date US Tour promoting his new EP ‘Buffalo Man’.
Pacific Hip-Hop pioneer, DJ Sir-Vere needs no

Flavours CDs sold in New Zealand and Australia combined, a
