After four preliminary rounds, it’s time for the grand finale of The Kulture of Hype&Hope, the biggest hip-hop event in the Netherlands. Breakers, hip-hoppers, housers, krumpers and lockers compete for the prizes under the watchful eye of an internationally renowned jury. It is your chance to see all Europe’s very best dancers competing under one roof. The programme includes crew battles, one-on-one battles and The Hypest Cypher: a spontaneous jam session in which dancers showcase their skills in various forms of freestyle. The great thing is that the entrance ticket entitles visitors to come and go as they please, so you can pop out whenever you like. On 6 July, you’ll have the chance to go to the Fire Edition in Theaterhuis De Berenkuil, one of the events leading up to the grand finale on 7 July.
