FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Madison-based non-profit Urban Community Arts Network (UCAN) announces its free Summer Hip-Hop concert series entitled “Back on the Scene.” UCAN, the organization responsible for The Madison Hip-Hop Awards and a variety of other urban arts events, will hold these live concerts both at area parks and on the capitol square.
Confirmed event dates:
Saturday, June 28 James Madison Park
Saturday, July 5 30 On the Square
Saturday August 16 Penn Park
Each event, made possible by grants from the Madison Arts Commission and Dane Arts (and fiscal receiver, Arts Wisconsin), will allow for a minimum of six performances from the underrepresented local urban artist community, for an approximate total of forty artists for the concert series. UCAN, in collaboration with the Boys and Girls Club Creative and Performing Arts director Greg Doby, will include youth performers in these events as well. As the events take place in public spaces, the concerts are free to attendees of all ages.
These events not only showcase the often overlooked urban music genre in Madison but also bring the urban arts community together, provide free entertainment to underserved neighborhoods and provide performance opportunities for artists without creative outlets.
Events in James Madison Park and Penn Park will be held from 1-7pm, with performances from 2-6pm including a mix of rap and dance performances. Between sets, a DJ will spin Hip-Hop music and we will feature beats made by local producers. We will provide some refreshments, card tables, cards, and dominoes to create a comfortable, family-BBQ style atmosphere.
Events at 30 On the Square will be held from 5-7pm on Saturdays. Approximately six rappers will perform in this time period as State Street and Capitol Square patrons walk by. As this performance space can only be booked three weeks in advance, dates will be announced as they are scheduled.
