The “One Love Hip-Hop Festival” will be bringing the likes of Nas, Raekwon, Wale, Machine Gun Kelly and J. Cole to Calgary, Canada on September 5th. The outdoor festival will be taking place at Shaw Millennium Park.
Organizer Faizel Dhalla said that it was important to choose headliners who had no “gangster, violent elements” to their careers.
“The representation of what this festival stands for had to be duplicated by the artists, Dhalla told the Calgary Herald. “This is a festival, that if you’re a parent and you have a 16-year-old kid, you’ll feel comfortable sending them because it’s a good, positive vibe.”
Dhalla is also hoping to make this festival an annual event.
Dreamville artists Bas and Cozz will also be gracing the stage as well as local artists Humble Giants and DJ Newboy.
