Lowkey + Guests

Lowkey + Guests: Lowkey headlines Refugee Week 2018 in a concert to mark 20 years of the festival. A leading light of the UK hiphop scene and a strong campaigning voice for the rights of refugees, British-Iraqi Lowkey is the ideal artist to be taking the lead at such an important time in the festival’s history. As one of the UK's most potent and electrifying rappers, Lowkey is a towering figure of the British hiphop scene who renews the tradition of conscious activism for a generation brought up with the' War on Terrorism'. Fusing politically charged lyrics and agile dissection of topics such as race, war, global poverty and internationalist politics with anthemic choruses and an unrelentingly energetic performance, Lowkey commands a keen and growing legion of followers, still treading new ground and generating fresh enthusiasm 14 years after releasing his first mixtape. Taking place 24 June, 2018 at KOKO, 1A Camden High Street, London NW1 7JE.
