Buma Rotterdam Beats completes festival line up 4th edition

The fourth edition of Buma Rotterdam Beats, taking place from November 14-16, will be showcasing some of the most exciting acts in the urban bass & beats genre. New exclusive names that are added to the festival program include innovative hip-hop producer Black Milk from Detroit, groundbreaking talent rapper/singer Mr. Probz from The Netherlands, popular drum ‘n bass duo Camo & Krooked from Vienna, and rapper Rockie Fresh from Chicago who is signed to Rick Ross’ record label. These latest additions complete the line-up of the Buma Rotterdam Beats festival.

In Denmark electronic soul is entering a new and exciting phase, in the United States an openly gay rapper makes noise in the popular queer rap scene, in Australia a dynamic band is breathing new life into the legacy of J Dilla, and a London duo are re-defining the post-dubstep landscape. And while Dutch producers make their mark on the international pop scene with banging beats, a national rapper picks up an acoustic guitar and conquers the charts.

All of them will appear at Buma Rotterdam Beats, ensuring a strong and varied festival, which takes place on 14, 15 and 16 November at various locations around Rotterdam’s city centre.

Alongside Mr. Probz, Black Milk, Camo & Krooked and Rockie Fresh, other new names added to the festival program are popular South African DJ Black Coffee, as well as Coely, the Antwerp rapper with Congolese roots, garage DJ Chaiba, Dutch drum ‘n’ bass pioneers Pamb & Harsh and Jeff Solo.
