(AllHipHop News) As summer time rolls around and the weather gets warmer, your favorite concerts and festivals are getting ready to hit a city near you.
For Hip-Hop fans that will be in the New York City area next month, the Downtown Festival is set to kick off May 10th and 11th on New York City’s Lower East Side.
California’s Black Hippy movement has been tapped to headline the festival as the crew of Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock will take the stage on Friday at 1 a.m.
Also joining the festival will be Odd Future (OFWGKTA) rapper Earl Sweatshirt, who is signed to Columbia records and Mr. Muthafuckin Exquire.
Festival organizers have prided themselves on making the festival big in sound, but small in venue size, as the festival looks to take over a host of intimate venues in NYC including but not limited to: Element, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, Pianos, Cake Shop, Tammany Hall, and the Rockwood Music Hall.
Adding to the allure of the festival, concert organizers are giving away (2) VIP tickets to the festival for both nights via a Facebook contest.
Contestants looking to win tickets merely need to share information about the festival on their Facebook wall.
In addition to general admission tickets, the Downtown Festival also has “super fan” tickets which guarantee access to one venue and are not viable for any of the other festival locations.
