Chronicling the emergence of the French hip-hop identity, inspired by the American model, the Hip-Hop 360 exhibition at the Philharmonie de Paris looks back on a story that began more than 40 years ago.

A rich and immersive journey

The exhibition of extreme musical richness focuses on several periods and founding events of the genre: the birth of the hip-hop movement in the Bronx in the 1970s, its arrival in France the following decade, its radio history in France, Parisian graffiti, rap and its musical grammar, the fashion pioneer Ticaret, the evolution of beat-making… The 360 space provides an immersive insight into the world of breakers, DJs, beatboxers and rappers, offering a unique experience with previously unseen performances and recordings.
Hip-Hop 360 is based on the contributions of key figures of the movement, pioneers and new generations, with in situ works: Grems, JonOne, Mode 2… works by graffiti pioneers such as Bando, Fab 5 Freddy, Futura 2000, JayOne … in addition to the recollections of Kery James, MC Solaar, Youssoupha, Cut Killer, Sniper, Infinit’, Chilla, Féfé and Leeroy, Tefa
The exhibition is also accompanied by a brand new sound creation by Niko Noki and rare photographs from witnesses to the history of hip-hop: Martine Barrat, Sophie Bramly, David Delaplace, Maï Lucas, Jean-Pierre Maéro, Yoshi Omori, Willy Vainqueur…

Hip-hop culture en route to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

Rap, dance, graffiti, DJ-ing, beat-making, beatboxing, fashion… Many people have seen hip-hop culture as a passing fad. It is clear, 40 years after its arrival in France, that it is fully integrated in the French musical, cultural… and sporting landscape. Rappers are among the most-streamed artists and breakdance has become a real institution which is set to play a part in the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Hip-hop culture is more dynamic than ever and shows no signs of slowing down!
