The Hardroad 2012, a collaborative project involving Engadine District Youth Services (EDYS) and Sutherland Shire Council, is a free all-ages festival designed to give MCs, DJs and B-Boys a platform to hone their skills and perform live.

“Unfortunately, there were very limited opportunities for MCs to perform in the area,” said Pat Thoms, one of the co-ordinators of the event.

“So we sat down with these aspiring MCs, as well as the council, and came up with The Hardroad, a hip hop event that will highlight local talent.”

Sydney hip hop artist Rapaport, who was runner up in the Australian Scribble Jam Battle in 2009, will headline the inaugural festival.

Sutherland Shire bands Empire Rising and High Noon will also join the line-up.

Mr Thoms said he hoped The Hardroad would become an annual event.

“EDYS has always been involved in supporting young musicians and performers, as well as providing safe and relevant events to young people,” he said.

Details: The Hardroad 2012, 1034-1036 Old Princes Highway, Engadine, Friday, April 13, noon to 4.30pm.
