With over 50 artists performing and with food and art being displayed around the park, there will be more than enough for everyone to do.
As far as other crowd favorites in attendance, there will be four stages set up with certain artists. On the black stage, Sir the Baptist and Tank and the Bangas will be performing. The gold stage will have musicians like The Internet, Roman GianArthur and Xavier Omar. Green stage will have music legends Ice Cube and Ceelo Green. And, the red stage will feature Earl Sweatshirt, Larry B and Spank Rock, plus many more.
And don’t worry about not wanting to go home right after the performances because there will be after parties hosted nearby. “After Dark” will consist of different acts and events for guests to enjoy like a comedy show, DJ sets, and film screenings in the Fort Greene neighborhood.
