TRENTON — Hip-hop will culture will return to Terracycle for the ninth year in a row.
Local artists and musicians will descend upon the New York Avenue Terracycle headquarters on August 9 for the Jersey Fresh Jam, the eco-friendly company said in a release Wednesday. Artists will spray the building with works of art. Last year, a mural depicting the popular “Game of Thrones” television show was painted on one of the building’s exterior.
Terracycle, according to the release, has opened its doors to local artists and the community. The event began in 2005 and has gone from a small celebration of local talent to the state’s premier hip-hop festival, the release said.
Among local artists who will be performing are DJ ITSJUSTAHMAD, Black Collar Biz, NAMEBRAND (featuring Sonic Assad and Rell Gambino) and more. The full list of performers can be found at the event’s website.
The Vicious Styles Crew, based out of Trenton, coordinates the event and is hosting a pre-party show called Cantankerous, which according to the release, is being sponsored by Momentum Art Tech. That event begins at 6 p.m. on Friday August 8 and runs until 10 p.m. at the Terracycle office.
The Jersey Fresh Jam, which is free to the public, begins on Saturday August 9 at noon and runs until 6 p.m. at 121 New York Avenue.
