Manifesto Festival 2011 Full Recap (+ 2007-2010 Recaps) [Video]

Toronto, ON – The first ever Manifesto Festival in September of 2007 was a huge success and went down as one of the largest and most unique hip-hop festivals in Canadian history. The festival brought together over 100 artists and thousands of spectators for 4 days of art and music, culminating in a massive free outdoor event at Toronto’s civic heart, Nathan Phillips Square, where many of Canada’s revered hip-hop pioneers shared the stage with some new blood in a celebration of our nation’s hip-hop legacy and future.

Born out of the idea of allowing the city’s young and emerging artists to showcase their talent on a bigger platform with a unified voice, The Manifesto Festival of Community & Culture celebrated its 5 year anniversary in 2011, taking place September 15th-25th, 2011 in Toronto, Canada. Watch a really cool recap video of the festival below and watch Manifesto recap videos from 2007 to 2010 after the jump.
