• We believe that the essence of our culture is creating a platform for participation. One day, one stage, one dance floor is never enough. We are the biggest little jam. A place to share music, dance, art and everything in between. Experience The Notorious IBE, a festival like no other.

  • Each summer people from all over the world gather to experience a festival which knows no equal. A festival dedicated to platform all aspects of Hip Hop Dance culture.  A place to dance. Exchange stories of past and future. Watch films, photography and Hip Hop Dance related art. Enjoy good food and party with friends and new friends. Good times with good people. Traveling from far. Sharing their love for the culture. From the classic sounds of Funk, Jazz, Disco, Soul, Latin grooves, African rhythms, House and Hip Hop to the Future Sounds of tomorrow at The Notorious IBE it’s the music that leads the way.
