I have been attending Earthwork Harvest Gathering since nearly the beginning watching it grow and evolve. For the last few years I have been hosting the Detroit Hiphop Showcase each year bringing a dynamic blend of rappers, dancers, and DJs to the Barn.
Now we get to return the favor and host an innovative Detroit- Earthwork mashup.
The full day festival hosted at the Dequindre Cut’s outdoor stage and greenway will feature some of Detroit’s hottest entertainment justice hip hop artists and musical artists of many other genres.
We’ll also have activities for families and children and representatives of some of Detroit’s most fierce and active justice organizations.
Sounds like heaven, right?
Detroit is a hometown of the grind and hustle. I’m excited to show the world the breadth of independent artists sharing their soul. I’m also excited for music lovers to meet and support local groups such as the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network which is preparing to open a food co-op in the heart of our city. This is where resistance, community, and culture meet and it will be a funky good time.
