Last year we confirmed that The BringItBackTour Stage would return for the 2012 Vans Warped Tour.
After a successful run on 8 dates of 2011’s Vans Warped Tour we announced the stage was set to return for all 41 cities in 2012, showcasing national and local Hip-Hop artists, live painters, B-Boy crews, DJ exhibitions, and more.
Jen Wing of Dubcnn went down to check out the Bring It Back Tour Stage hip-hop stage at the Vans Warped Tour in June 2012 during the tour’s San Francisco stop. On June 23rd we had a chance to catch up with the tour’s founder, Tyler Stark aka Fritzo, and leading member in Hip Hop Congress, Rahman Jaamal who talked about the message and experience they hope to bring the festival goers.
The duo also has plans to start up a new tour called Inspire in 2013. Inspire will visit communities to provide youth with resources, mentor-ships and opportunities to grow as artists, as well as teaching young artists how to build businesses and profit off of a creative lifestyle.
Below we have Photos & Video highlights from that San Francisco day!
