Lead by the charismatic visionary Ruby “Boogie” Newton; One Nation is an independent state united through the power of urban music culture. Made up of 3 districts and 8 boroughs named The Block, The Grind, Yoruba, Then Corner, Chicville, The Plaza, Boogaloo and The Junction each unique district has its own sub culture, sound, style and passionate identity…


‣The Block [Hip Hop & R&B Anthems, past present & future]
⌁ Hosted by Applebum ⌁
The Block is the beating heart of One Nation. The pulsating sounds of Rap and R&B music are heard from every street corner, from West Coast jams to Eastside sounds, from throwback beats to new school anthems, the crew from the block are the proud epicentre for Hip Hop culture.

‣The Grind [Grime, Trap, UK Garage]
⌁ Hosted by 1Forty ⌁
The breeding ground for distinct sub genres of urban music, the Grind crew lay claim to the UK sounds of Garage and Grime. Energetic, gritty and passionate about their borough, members of this inner city neighbourhood are young, creative and fearless.

‣Yoruba [Reggae, Bashment, Dancehall, Afrobeat]
⌁ Hosted by Carnival ⌁
The colourful borough of Yoruba is the home of African and West Indian music and culture, the moment you step foot inside the carnival of Yoruba you're greeted by the sounds of reggae, bashment and Afrobeat. Yorubans are a family and will welcome you with a cold cocktail and a warm smile.

‣The Corner [Live Urban Music]
⌁ Hoted by Paya• ⌁
The Rhyme Corner is a place for budding rappers, MCs and singers to come together, share music, and perform. With an open format for anyone to jump on stage, the corner is the gateway to urban music success.


‣Chicville [Disco, Funk, Soul, Boogie]
⌁ Hosted by Triple Cooked ⌁
Over in Chicville, it's all about the boogie, with Funk, Soul and Disco the main ingredients. Well known for their sharp dress, slick moves and uptown swagger the people of Chicville are the original late night purveyors of the dance!

‣The Plaza
The Plaza is home to the best Street food vendors from across the nation. Pizza by the slice, delicious burgers, Mac & Cheese and much more.


‣Boogaloo [80s Hip Hop, Electro & Rare Groove]
⌁ Hosted by Loose Catz.⌁
Just east of Chicville the Boogaloo Roller Disco crew reside. After being at the centre of the birth of Hip Hop culture years ago the founding fathers of the Boogaloo Crew moved uptown out of The Block to create a small network of Hip Hop purists with a passion for roller skating, Hip Hop and 80s Electro.

‣The Junction [Old School Hip Hop & Breaks]
Everybody enters the One Nation via The Junction, with DJs spinning classic Hip Hop beats, breakdancing crews and the graffiti zone with street art masterpieces. You'll also find an urban fashion market here with the flyest local streetwear and vintage pop-ups on the show.


Separately the boroughs of One Nation are vibrant and unique places each with their own defined sound, style and surroundings. Together they make up a diverse republic united through Urban Music Culture.
