We throw shows. Good ones. If you're a fan of hip-hop, electronica, or dance music in the Twin Cities area, chances are you've been to one of our concerts. Hydrive works with venues, businesses, and brands to throw parties catered to the college crowd. We offer a variety of capabilities; from artist management, to booking, to media sponsorships, and press. Simply put, we do it all.
What started out as a one-off DJ'ing gig at Blarney Pub and Grill (Kazaam) quickly grew into something much bigger. Hydrive Shows now books & promotes everything from independent artists to national headliners, at a number of venues in the Twin Cities area. Now a team of 15, we continue to put on concerts that have been well recieved throughout the Twin Cities hip-hop, electronic, and dance community. With a dedicated and passionate team, a well-rounded knowledge and utilization of social media and guerrilla marketing, we've helped brands and artists acquire the word of mouth/buzz they've been craving.
