Now perhaps it's not news to everyone, but a good portion of folks thinking about Vans Warped Tour are more likely to associate it with eye makeup and spiked belts as opposed to New Era caps and watches with very large faces. No longer! The "Bring It Back" Stage, featuring "B-Boy
competitions, DJ exhibitions, Graffiti walls, and live performances," traveling with the Warped Tour 2011 is loaded with hip-hop talent, including locals Mr. Chief and J. NiCS & DJ Numonics.
When Warped and "Bring It Back" hit Cruzan Amphitheatre on July 30, more local rappers can get in on the exposure and the pleasure of performing at a huge event that also includes OneBeLo
(Binary Star), Total Eclipse, Z-Man, MED, Soul Khan, Asia One, and more than a dozen others.
Two slots are open for South Florida hip-hop talents. To submit your music, simply head to the event's Reverb Nation submission page. Looks like you'll have to part with a $16 submission fee and do a few things to make your Reverb Nation page sparkle, but someone with more hustle and determination will do it if you don't, right?
Vans Warped Tour. Saturday, July 30, at Cruzan Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansbury's Way, West Palm Beach. Tickets cost $28.05. Click here.
