The 4th Edition of NUW Takes Over Ninkasi Gerland
The Ninkasi Urban Week Festival returns from May 21-27 for its 4th edition, held primarily in the two parts of Ninkasi Gerland, Kao and Kafé (267 Rue Marcel Mérieux, 69007).
The lineup features rappers and artists like Chilla, Tha Dogg Pound, and Grandmaster Flash, among others. Meanwhile, all the Ninkasi restaurants will be hosting blind tests (with rap as the theme, of course!) to open the festival on May 21 starting at 8:30 p.m.
The weeklong festival is dedicated to music and dance, with hip hop performances alongside DJ Sly on May 27.
But that’s not all they’re offering in the way of unique events. NUW also features a BMX contest and skate demos at the Gerland location on May 26 and 27. There will also be preview showings of the film Mutafukaz at the Comoedia (13 Avenue Berthelot, 69007) from May 25-27.
Tickets are on sale now, with prices running from free to €27 depending on the show.
