Leroy Moore, Krip Hop founder said: "We are really happy to be returning to the UK for this tour. Krip-Hop is more than music as a movement it is gathering momentum…we have been following developments in the UK; from hate crime to the cuts to disability benefits and we’ll be responding to this through our work in the UK. We'll also be celebrating & combining our international disability culture to Hip-Hop culture".

The tour will include workshops: More Than Music: DIY Workshop on Disability Justice through Music. See individual venues for information.
