Beats & Bars is an event brand & musical movement that showcases live Hip-Hop acts and deejays. Founded by Tricksta in 2012, Beats & Bars are committed to pushing and promoting quality Hip-Hop music and culture.

Beats & Bars have now put over 100 events and hold it in high regard that we have never had any trouble at our events and there is always a friendly vibrant atmosphere capturing the essence of real Hip-Hop. We always support local talent in the city or town we put events on always making it our goal to please people who live in the location of the event.
We also have booked bigger acts such as US acts Dead Prez, Smif’n’Wessun, Bronze Nazareth (Wu Tang), Stl Gld, Rich Quick, John Reilly, Wake Self & DJ Element, Ill Gordan, as well as the cream of the UK scene such as Klashnekoff, Skinnyman, Verb T (The Four Owls), Phili & Dotz, Genesis Elijah, Tony D, M9, Micall Parknsun, Kingpin and many more. We have a team of dedicated acts, DJ’s, breakers, graffiti artists, designers, videographers, photographers and a committed street team.

We have a full merchandise range with caps, beanies, tee’s, mugs, badges, stickers etc., as well as banners.
