This year we had the opportunity to celebrate the end of the summer with the Hip Hop You Do not Stop (HHYDS) Festival from September 19th to 22nd, 2019. Since 2005, the festival has been co-presented by Prévention CDN-NDG ( and Elementality Media (, with the support of the City of Montreal and Heritage Canada.

The festival offered free events for the whole community and for all ages: workshops of all kinds, concerts, streetdance competitions and many other things.

The artists Micros Armés, Trinisha Browne, Lotus Collective, Que Rock and Sans Pression were among the many performers. There was the break dance competition Crew Battle, the truck graffiti competition Day of the Movement with Giant, founder of the Bartendaznyc movement.


We thank all the participants who came to enjoy this festival for the 14th consecutive year.
