Uprock is a four day fusion of faith and hip hop culture!

Workshops and performances, with people from around Australia and the world!

Previous participants have described Uprock as "the best weekend of my life" and "a life changing experience."

Two days of conference streams include emceeing, sound production, graffiti, breaking, DJ'ing, getting your music heard, hip-hop history, christian teaching and leadership. 

Two nights of concerts featuring artists from overseas and around Australia.

Networking and chill day at the beach on Monday.

Artists coming in from overseas are:
