Hip Hop on the Water is a simple and unique concept that creates a fun and memorable summer event for youth, while allowing local independent Hip Hop performers the opportunity to show their craft to a wider and more knowledgeable audience. After a packed boat on the first year, Hip Hop on the Water doubled its capacity the following 2 years. The Event hopes to continue this growth over the next few years and to eventually take the festival to the shores of Lake Union and boast the largest, local Hip Hop Festival on the West Coast.
