POW! WOW! Hawaii 2019

It’s our favourite time of year! POW! WOW! Hawaii kicks off this weekend and we’re extremely excited to be one of the media partners once again. One of our very own members, Drew Young, is headed out there to paint a mural for the first time and we’ll be sharing his experience via our Instagram throughout the week.

In 2018, the festival was held in Washington D.C., Kathmandu, Nepal, Long Beach, California, Worcester, Massachusetts, Rotterdam, Netherlands, San Jose, California, Kobe, Japan and now it returns home to Honolulu, Hawaii.

A ton of artists we love will be out there for this one: Joao Ruas, Lauren YS, Amy Sol, Aaron De La Cruz, Kevin Lyons and many others. Logan Hicks and Shepard Fairey will be doing artist talks, and Thinkspace and Spoke Art have each organized art shows that will open during the week. The big concert event this year features Eminem, Logic, and Sheck Wes. It’s gonna be a big one.

Check out the festival schedule here and be sure to follow along on their Instagram @powwowworldwide.
