The Bay Area’s best DJs, Emcees, B-Boys and Artists have assembled to pay tribute to life and legacy of Oakland’s beloved Graffiti King and Bay Area legend, Mike “DREAM” Francisco. Recognized worldwide as a style master, Dream’s graffiti established the visual aesthetic of Oakland’s Hip Hop culture, and put The Town (Oakland) on the map in what is now the fastest growing art movement in human history.
This event marks eleven years since Dream was tragically murdered, and all proceeds from the event will benefit the Dream Book Fund and the Dream Legacy Fund for his son Akil, 11, who recently lost his mother to breast cancer.
If you are unable to attend and wish to support, please make checks out to The Dream Legacy Fund, or Akil Francisco.
