The event is headlined by the man dominating the charts and everyone's iPOD; Akon who is bringing his Senegalese flavour to the stage and has stated "I can't wait to finally come back to and perform for my fans in Auckland".

He will be joined by Rap powerhouse The Game, on his first ever trip to Auckland. He recently stated "I've heard a lot of good things about this event and I'm ready to come and Roc tha Block, the West Coast way".

With the Icons of Hip Hop in tow, Naughty By Nature bringing the old school flavour and Hip Hop anthems to the stage.

Focused on delivering names with both street respect and chart topping credibility, in addition to the already massive line up is Def Jam rapper, Juelz Santana (made famous for "the Whistle Song") and current chart topper, MIMS.
