DMX joins line up at NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND Festival
March 26, 2014
NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL held on Zrce beach announces the addition of hip-hop's most controversial rapper: DMX, who makes his first return to Europe in over a decade.
Stepping up with the already announced Method Man & Redman, Pusha T, the twenty best European DJ crews and Adria Dance Camp, the team at NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL is proud to announce hip-hop's most controversial rapper: DMX. There's no debating that DMX is a heavy-weight emcee, holding the highest number of platinum releases in the world of hip-hop, in addition to an impressive 30 million records sold worldwide, making him one of the best selling rap artists of all time. It should be no surprise then that many of today's music critics percieve him as being in the same lane as Tupac Shakur (2PAC). X has also built up a respectable career in Hollywood, where he's recieved much success for his supporting roles in films such as Belly, Romeo Must Die, and Exit Wounds to name a few.
X, an artist who lives his life to the fullest, acts, performs, breaks sales records, collects multiple awards, has a maxed out biography that many of today's musicians could only hope to achieve. Collaborations and the chance to share the stage with some of today's biggest artists such as Jay-Z, Dr. Dre and Eminem have also highlighted his career. Due to complications with the law, DMX hasn't touched the stage in Europe in over ten years. NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL is set to change that and write a new page in hip-hop history books as DMX makes his first return to Europe at Zrce beach.
Dark Man X has guaranteed his fans that this will be a performance to remember. The festival all goes down on Zrce beach in clubs Papaya and Aquarius from July 23rd to 25th. In addition, NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL has teamed up with Atomic Dance Factory to announce the second installment of Adria Dance Camp – the first international dance camp where Beyonce's coveted choreographers Les Twins, b-boy Kid David, street dancer Tight Eyez, Japanese dancer Koharu KOKO Sugawara, Mike Song and many more respected names in dance will be in attendence.
