March 26th-29th 2020: Trinity International Hip Hop Festival

Each year, the festival brings together hip hop artists, academics, activists and fans from dozens of countries to perform, share and teach. Founded in the spring of 2006, the Trinity International Hip Hop Festival was created to combat the disunity, segregation, and violence of Hartford, CT and Trinity College. Using the historically education-oriented and politically revolutionary medium — Hip Hop – and focusing on its global potency and proliferation, the Trinity International Hip Hop Festival works to unify Trinity College, the city of Hartford, and the Globe. Take a look at scenes from past festivals:
