In the 10 years that FBi 94.5 FM has been on air it has been making a huge contribution to making Sydney a better place to live in. It has been given huge support to exciting new music nobody else has been playing, and has also been the hub for many people that are opening businesses and putting on events that are enriching our city.
To celebrate we decided to put on a party. Not just any party. Possibly one of the best festivals in Sydney since ever. By the railroad in Chippendale, Carriage Works turned out to be a beautiful setting for a party. The crowd was a really good looking laid back bunch of people. And the line up was an amazing collection of friends of our station.
Here are some pictures mostly from the Hip Hop stage where the likes of Urthboy, Spit Syndicate, Joyride, Thundamentals, Kataylst, Big Village Family, Citizen Kay, Naughty Rappers Collective, Mike Who and me – Shantan Wantan Ichiban – peformed. Fun times.
No small or even medium sized tings tonight. Just big tunes and big issues.
We talk racism and the Aussie Hip Hop scene, Indigenous Hip Hop and stray cats named Slim Thug with Urthboy.
Also to get you in the mood for Dutty Dancing this Saturday at Goodgod, Shantan Wantan Ichiban plays a set of gargantuan Caribbean tunes with a African and Latin twist.
