This event was the brain child of Derek Dyer and Tamara Fox along with a very long list of supporters and volunteers who all play majors role in the urban arts community.
I can sit here and talk about how great its going to be and everyone else that is involved, but really what’s the point. You just need to go! Did I mention its all FREE!
Urban Media will be there selling original merch from their show and from their sponsors (SGRSTK and Panic 39) as well as filming the majority of the event. The following week they’ll be releasing a highlight video of the festival and some sweet photos. But if you want the full experience be sure to attend.
