METROPOLINK is a new festival (July 8 to 22 but still continuing this October and November with Cabriolet tours) that is dedicated to Urban Art with huge wall art all around the city that has transformed the sides of buildings. This city art is an incredible backdrop as Heidelberg has become the place for all the top names in German hip-hop, from Torch to Advanced Chemistry. Today Heidelberg is home to post modern art, modern performances and everything new and hip from Street Dance and Poetry Slams and new Grafitti. Interdisciplinary events with international arts take place on a regular basis. Artists at the Breidenbach Studios als auch im Dezernat 16 collaborate and cool events such as the »Mut zur Wut« poster festival and the „WilliBender Projects“ attracted international attention and the title of UNESCO Creative City.
