Snotty Nose Rez Kids / Reykjavíkurdætur / Ric Wilson @ The Grand

Up Here 5 kicks off with a nice big hip-hop show featuring Haisla Nation's Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Iceland's Reykjavíkurdætur and Chicago's Ric Wilson. Presented by Downtown Sudbury.

Snotty Nose Rez Kids are the combined talents of Yung Trybez and Young D, hailing from the West Coast Haisla Nation, “The People of the Snow.” They blend trap beats with woven lyricism into thought-provoking club bangers that challenge Indigenous stereotypes. Audiences dance, sweat, and leave energized with new knowledge. The group is behind the song Skoden that inflamed social media in 2017. They’re bringing the fresh energy and new sound from their new album TRAPLINE to this year’s festival.

Reykjavíkurdætur is an irresistibly radical, all-women hip-hop collective from Iceland united by their love of hip-hop and the urge to rebel against the conservative misogynistic values of modern society. They have made a huge impact on the music scene in Iceland since they first appeared in 2013. Now they’re taking the world: tearing down walls and plowing the way for future generations. P.S. It’s pronounced Rik-Kia-Vik-Kur-Die-Tur.

Ric Wilson is Chicago's nouveau disco inspired rap superstar. Activist, community goofball and prolific composer, the 23-year-old electrified motivational funka hop pop poet has a whole lot to prove to the world.
