Unflinching hip hop, and vital dancefloor energy, holding the status quo to account.

DRMNGNOW and Kobie Dee

Hip hop has always been a vehicle for change. One of its most vocal practitioners is DRMNGNOW (Yorta Yorta/Dja Dja Wurrung/Wiradjuri), who uses music and poetry to reject colonialism and champion First Peoples sovereignty. For RISING, he plays his first shows since pre-pandemic.

Co-headlining the night in his debut Naarm performance is Kobie Dee (Gomeroi), the MC from Maroubra in South Sydney, Bidjigal land, whose single releases over the last couple of years—‘Role Model’ and ‘This Life (feat. Bea Moon)’—include reflective rap meditations on his life, that dip in and out of a distinctive double time flow. Opening the night (and playing between sets) is DJ, SOVBLKPSSY (Ngarrindjeri/Ramindjeri/Walkandi-Woni/Wangkumara); who will hand over to the Kenyan-born, Pookie, who’s coming in hot off the back of her new track ‘Unstoppable’.
