In a mere nine weeks, from June 21 to Sep. 13, Applebum will be kicking off their massive 13-week residency at Sankeys in Ibiza. As is always the case, there’ll be a lot of festivals, parties and so on claiming to have “hip-hop legends” on their line-up this summer. And perhaps they do have one or two, but they certainly won’t have this many. DJ Jazzy Jeff, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Premier, Blackstreet, Coolio, Slum Village, Sugar Hill Gang, DJ Yella, The Furious Five have all been confirmed as playing at Applebum’s parties this summer.
And that’s not even the half of it. Whimsical turntablist DJ Yoda will also be playing, as will Nightmares On Wax, DJ Craze, Doorly, UK hip-hop upstarts The Age Of Luna, Gold Teeth and more. It’s still early days, so if that’s got you hyped to go ‘beefa, keep an eye out for the next round of announcements.
