Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival


Mission Statement


Ladies of Hip Hop Festival (LOHHF) is a nonprofit organization that provides artistic opportunities for girls & women in hip-hop culture.  Through female-powered workshops, performances, public talks, and professional development training, LOHHF is educating and cultivating hip-hop's next generation of female leaders.

In March of 2011, Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival went to Europe! In Partnership with Urban Arts & Culture of Austria and the KosmosTheater, LOHHF debuted internationally in Vienna, Austria to three evenings of sold out shows, a jam-packed panel discussion, and great workshops. It was a tremendous experience for the eight US instructors and performers, some traveling abroad for the first time ever. In the 10 days in Vienna LOHHF director, Michele Byrd-McPhee and dancers created a collaborative work with Austrian artists. 

Most recently the festival began a partnership with the Los Angeles based organization,  Versa-Style Dance Company. After years of doing work in the Hip-Hop community, Jackie Lopez aka “MISS FUNK”, Co-Founder & Artistic Director of VSD and  Michele Byrd-McPhee, Founding Director of LOHHF  teamed up for first LA edition of Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival. The two organizing giants presented a mini-version of the annual NYC festival. It was an overwhelming success!

Program Statement

Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival has been a driving force in the empowerment of girls & women in HipHop. LOHHF began as a training ground for female HipHop dancers looking for a different perspective of the dance. It quickly grew from a day of dance workshops to a week-long international festival including female DJs, Mcees, graffiti & visual artists from around the world. LOHHF has built an international tribe of girls and women supporting each other.
