Small and/or Inexpensive Hip-Hop, R&B and Jazz Festivals for Summer 2016 (U.S. Only)
Other than the warm weather, longer days and opportunities to get outdoors, I love the late spring and summer because of the festivals!
There are countless festivals and events, big and small, that occur here in the U.S. during this time, especially for music. I decided to share a few of them for you all to make plans to attend this summer...because what use is the warm weather and longer days if you don't get to travel, enjoy the outdoors and have fun?
Included in this list are events varying in size and are hip-hop, R&B, and jazz centered that aren't as huge as Essence Festival, but they're still really fun, interesting, full of talent, inspiring, and, aren't super expensive (and in some cases are free!). So, check out the list below, then check your calendars, your bank accounts, and make some memorable summer plans!
Capital Jazz Fest – June 3-5 in Columbia, MD at the Merriweather Post Pavilion [Website]
We Love Music Conference – July 16-17 in Indianapolis, IN at the Indiana Convention Center [Website]
This list is saturated with events on the East Coast, so if you know of anything going on out west, comment below or tweet me at @amirahrashidah.
