Breakin’ Convention is an entire weekend of performances, workshops, activities and parties.
Festival events include:
Step into the salacious side of street dance and experience an exclusive night of hip hop cabaret as Breakin' Convention "comes of age" for its sweet 16th birthday.
Following an inaugural launch in 2015, join Breakin' Convention on its opening evening, kicking off the festival in an adults-only, adult-themed evening of works and new commissions.
This is WorX: Titillating tales of desire and temptation through dance, circus and poetry.
Each day Breakin' Convention spills out into the foyers as they come alive with dance, music and art.
After collecting your wristband admire the grand international mural, or grab some merchandise from the shop. Head upstairs to the Mezzanine level and get down in the dance circles, with live music from resident DJs Tha En4cers. Pre-show we have an emcee to warm you up for the main stage, and a beatboxer during the interval. Now it's time to find your feet and learn the freshest moves! If you're not quite ready to take a masterclass, let us take you through some basic steps for free. And for the younger kids, look out for the Tiny Totrock Sessions. It's time to get creative, grab some markers and create your own tag, or if you're a beginner, fill out some of our pre-drawn templates.
Breakin' Convention's infamous after party returns on Sunday 5 May. Come get down, meet the artists and join us in celebrating 15 years of Breakin' Convention with a night of hip hop culture in full effect at O2 Academy Islington.
Breakin' Convention's Park Jam has earned a reputation as one of the UK's realest hip hop events. Taking things back to the roots of the culture, this jam is suitable for the whole family. A funk-filled, open-air dance, music and art filled extravaganza.
