The 4ESydney hip hop festival is returning in 2020.

The event will run from Saturday 21 March to Saturday 4 April and will include conferences, live music, workshops and more. 

DOBBY, Naomi Keyte, Luka Lesson, Nardean, Mirrah, South West Syndicate and Zeadala are among the first artists to be announced on this year's line-up. 

"The vision for 4ESydney is simple - to cultivate a community that involves the power of people, shared stories through the love of hip hop. Born out of passion and the neglect of the west, 4ESydney was developed to create an industry infrastructure lacking in our local musical and arts landscape in Western Sydney," said 4ESydney Festival Director/Artist Manager Vyvienne Abla

"We are dedicated to highlighting the impactful ways that youth, artists and industry utilise hip hop culture and activism to uplift their communities, address important social issues and create their own pathways for success. At the very core of 4ESydney, we are here for the long run and endeavour to develop a foundation and community that will connect and impact globally."

2020 also sees the festival's second annual conference where industry professionals, artists, community and more will come together for roundtables, networking events and more. 

The festival will wrap up with huge event on Saturday 4 April, which will feature performances from over 100 artists, exhibitions, art activations and more.
