Since debuting back in 2015, boutique festival 4Elements has cemented itself at the forefront of Western Sydney’s fierce hip-hop scene.

The festival focuses on burgeoning female and other non-male talent across Sydney (and the world) and this weekend will see it return with another massive line-up of locals and internationals.

Sydney export Maya Jupiter will headline the main event on Saturday, March 10, supported by local upstars like Dawn Laird, Iman Etri, Nardean, and Melbourne’s Kudos. Check out the full line-up below.

This year 4Elements will also be running a two-day seminar in the lead up to the festival, with industry panels focusing on activism within hip-hop, multiculturalism, gender and sexuality, and the impact of movements like #MeToo and #MeNoMore. Get across the full program here.

But best of all? Every part of 4Elements Sydney is FREE.

The seminar and festival take over Bankstown Arts Centre from March 8 to 10. Keep across all the details on their event page; and register for the event here.
