Traditionally, men have dominated all facets of the Hip Hop scene, but Ladies of Hip Hop Festival changes this tradition and puts girls and women center-stage. LOHHF offers workshops, performance opportunities, international artist exchanges and public talks to train, educate, and create the next generation of women in the Hip Hop culture. Teaching and sharing the culture through the female perspective is essential to the growth of Hip-Hop culture.
