Cork City will host the fourth and final LiveStyles Hip Hop Festival this June bank holiday weekend, with over 50 artists from Ireland and Europe attending to showcase rapping, breakdancing, graffiti art and more.

Among the line-up are: DJ One Up (France), 4 Pence Graffiti Collective (UK), God Knows & mynameisjOhn (Ennis), Furious Styles Crew (Spain) and Deviant & Naïve Ted (Limerick).

On the decision to end the festival after four years, director Ross Herlihy said: "We've been fighting tooth and nail every year to keep the festival going, but after four tough years we've given all we can.

"The support we've received from the public has been truly humbling. We're planning to keep running events in Cork, but just not to this scale."
