Sticks is one of the most influential figures in Dutch hip-hop. Over fifteen years ago, he bursted onto the scene with Rico and producer Delic as a part of Opgezwolle. Album such as ‘Spuugdingen op de mic’, ‘Vloeistof’ and ‘Eigen Wereld’ are now classified as hip-hop classics. You might also know him from collaborations with various artists such as Winne, Jiggy Djé, Wu-Tang clan producer Dr. Moon, Typhoon, A.R.T., and Zwangere Guy. He recently dropped a new album called ‘Alles Over Hoop’, which might just be a hint to the vibe of his upcoming performance at Hit The City. Revelry guaranteed.


A moshpit on violin music? It’s not unthinkable with sor, who is one of the most promising and unique artists in Dutch hip-hop. This Amsterdam jack-of-all-trades (rapper, producer, composer) merges classical music with drill and trap hip-hop influences, accompanied by a whole orchestra. He recently won a contest in conducting music with Maestro, has gained millions of streams with his project Bae Doven, is a prominent member of Black Acid and is signed by Noah’s Ark. This all despite the fact of his intense hearing loss, which forced him to work even more creatively. This Hit The City, he will bring his impressive blend of styles accompanied by strings.
