Douala Hip Hop Festival is a major meeting of urban cultures in the Africa subregion Central. Managed by a professional and passionate team. It’s in 2010 that the festival was created by the cultural company ARGLO, in partnership with the Green Grass association.
The first year the festival was organized around four activities music (Hip Hop mainly), the Street Wear, the Graffiti and DJ Ying as the saying goes the essential thing was to participate with an overflowing passion.
In 2012, we instituted the Hip Hop legend of the festival which is designated to accompany the festival and therefore the passive tells the story of Cameroonian hip hop in particular and African in general. Krotal was our first legend followed by KOPPO, Sadrake from NEGRISSI’M, BOUDOR and LADY B in 2017, the idea being to present to the youngest, the pioneers. Always in this momentum and in a dynamic opening, a sponsor accompanies the festival. This is a figure having marked the African music in general and Cameroon in particular: 2015 (Les Tetes Brulees) / 2016 (San Fan Thomas) / 2017 (Ben Decca).
This opening is extended both with the diversification of activities, festival-goers and beginning to come first from the Central African, African and today from all over the world.
Sharing a common vision for seven years, this group of passionate musics united his personal efforts to tell and perpetuate the history of rap and African urban arts with the support of some local businesses and patrons
Over the years, with many innovations, DHF has become a privileged scene contributing the development of Hip-Hop but also other musical and artistic trends such as street dance, graffiti
