About Us

The Hull Beats Bus initiative has been designed to encourage the city’s next generation to speak out about their hopes and aspirations through music.

By combining the elements of hip-hop break-dance, graffiti, emceeing and Djing knowledge, we have developed a unique and exciting way to allow our young people to do just that and express to the city and to the world what Hull people have to offer.

As Hull was the UK’s City of Culture 2017, what better time to launch the Beats Bus!

A major partner of the city of culture kindly donated a mobile sales unit which renowned graffiti artist Si2 has transformed into the Beats Bus you see today.

Inside you will find a mobile recording studio to record and the chance to communicate the music you create to people across the city.
