HIP-HOP aficionados gathered in the city over the weekend for the second annual Make a Move festival.

Highlights of the three day youth culture festival included a dance-off between hip-hop dancers in Limerick and Cork, as well as a massive wrap party in the Blind Pig, Thomas Street.

There was also a special dance class event held at the University Arena for children and young adults with physical and mental limitations.

The event saw a discussion forum addressing styles of street arts, while there was hip-hop music workshops at the Learning Hub. St John’s Square welcomed a block party. The headline acts in the Blind Pig, Mickey Martins and Bourke’s Bar included Limerick DJ Aoife Ni Canna, Cork scratcher Colm Kenefick, and local DJ Peter Curtin, alongside DJ Moschops.
