What do you call a three-day concert featuring a diverse collection of artists, played on five stages, including extreme sports demonstrations, and NOT assembled by Perry Farrell?
The Beyond 2002 Super Festival.
The event, scheduled to take place at Bicentennial Park in Miami April 12,13, and 14, will feature on its main stage the big dogs of hip-hop: Outkast, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Ice-T, Afrika Bambaataa, Slick Rick and more. The side stages will be where both established and up-and-coming electronic and drum'n'bass specialists strut their stuff. The full list of side-stage performers is not yet available.
In addition to the 39 hours worth of music, many side attractions are planned. Among them, DJ, MC and b-boy battles for cash prizes that showcase big-name talent (register at hiphopelements.com). Graffiti writers from around the world will participate in an expo/competition. A professional paintball tournament is scheduled, and extreme sports stars from the worlds of skateboarding, snowboarding, BMX and motocross will be on hand as well.
The promoters of the show really want you to come, so they've made it easy for you and your friends. For $20 a day (with a minimum group of 47 people), Beyond 2002 will provide charter bus rides to and from the festival.
