It’s time for BUMF again. Boston Urban Music Festival, that is, but feel free to just say BUMF.
Sharing the stage with up-and-coming local hip-hop, soul, funk, and R&B artists, Brooklyn-native Talib Kweli will infiltrate Boston this Sunday, August 24 as BUMF’s headliner. Here’s a snapshot of the 5th annual, family-friendly free outdoor fest.
When: Sunday August 24, 2014 at 2 PM
Where: City Hall Plaza, Boston
For a full-course meal on who’s playing, visit BUMF’s website. For now, a quick taste:
This Sunday, DJ/Producer/rapper Clinton Sparks will hit Boston with the bass. Although known for collaborations with Lady Gaga, Mike Posner, 2 Chainz, and many other pop icons, Sparks will fly solo this time around.
If nothing else, Shea Rose has an Afro rivaling Diana Ross’s that you should go see. That said, she’s an acclaimed musician too. Berklee grad and Boston Music Award winner, Rose was once called “America’s next female rapper” by Queen Latifah.
