The Obese Records Block Party is back in 2008 and it’s bigger, better and further reaching than ever before.
Now in its fifth instalment, Block Party is undoubtedly the most significant hip hop event of the year, a nationwide showcase featuring the cream of the Obese Records roster. In 2007 a sold out tour took in shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Melbourne. In 2008, Obese Records takes Block Party to the next level, extending its reach to include stops in Perth, Canberra and Byron Bay.
Block Party has become renowned for unforgettable sets, incredible energy and a few surprises and this year’s tour will prove no exception. Each show offers an extraordinary line-up, including performances from Pegz, Downsyde, Drapht, Muph & Plutonic, Chasm, Spit Syndicate, Bias B, Reason, Hyjak N Torcha, DJ Bonez, Tommy Illfigga, Jeswon, Dialectrix, DJ 2Buck, mdusu&dameza plus more to be announced!
The Obese Records Block Party Tour is a testament to the growing quality of hip hop in Australia and the ever-expanding fan-base of Australian hip hop. Each night will be an extraordinary experience that not only entertains but demonstrates why Obese Records is at the head of the hip hop game.
