The Hull Beats Bus
initiative has been designed to encourage the city’s next generation to speak out about their hopes and aspirations through music.
The bus, originally a mobile sales unit donated by a major partner of the UK City of Culture initiative in 2017, was given a makeover by renowned graffiti artist Si2, transforming it into the Beats Bus you see today - complete with a mobile recording studio, giving the next generation the opportunity to have their music heard by people across the city. By combining the elements of hip-hop, break-dance, graffiti, emceeing, Dj-ing and knowledge, they've developed a unique and exciting way to allow Hull's young people to speak out and express themselves.
At Festival of the Sky, the Beats Bus will be working with some local youth groups including VANEL
, Trinity Sounds
and also festival goers to provide a unique musical experience on the North Promenade! When:Saturday 7th September
