Now in its fifth year, the Show & Prove concert series as part of The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is a showcase of independent and local hip-hop talent. One of the Festival's most celebrated events, it consists of three (3) preliminary contests (held in April, May and June) and the Show & Prove Super Bowl (held in July), which concludes the series and kicks-off the Festival.

How it works:

Four (4) artists/groups will be selected to perform at each preliminary event, and one (1) artist/group winner will be selected at each preliminary. The three (3) winners from the preliminary events will then compete at the Show & Prove Super Bowl for the opportunity to open on the Festival's stage on Saturday, July 13th.

Show & Prove preliminary dates:

  • Show & Prove #1 - Thursday, April 18th (Submission deadline = April 2nd, 2013)
  • Show & Prove #2 - Friday, May 23rd (Submission deadline = TBA)
