Vote for Soul- Capitol HipHop SoulFest 2008 - Real Music Lives

There are still champions of authentic, non-homogenized music and one of them is hosting a soulful festival for the art starved masses who have been abused by the thoughtlessness and timidity of the formulaic mainstream.

More information is listed below about this event:


PRLog (Press Release)Apr 23, 2008 – Liberated Muse Productions, a Washington DC community-based arts event-planning group will be hosting the Capital Hip Hop Soul Fest. The event is planned to take place on Saturday, July 26, 2008 in Marvin Gaye Park from 11 am-8pm. Already, the event is generating an enormous amount of buzz.

"We have gotten a fantastic response," says one of the festival's organizers, Khadijah Ali-Coleman. "We've had to extend the festival by two hours because it will be jam-packed with activities and performances."

In efforts to solicit acts for the free outdoors event, Ali-Coleman posted ads on popular sites Craiglist, the Washington City Paper, MySpace, and Facebok. "Within minutes, literally, we were flooded with folks interested in participating. This is a big deal to many people and its exciting how many people want to be a part of it."

The festival will take place in Marvin Gaye Park which is named after hometown legend Marvin Gaye. The park is located in the northeast part of Washington DC. The park is formerly known as the Watts-Branch Park. The organizers of the festival hope that the event will allow local metropolitan artists to connect with their audiences while promoting enjoyable events targeting those in a 25-40 year-old age group who may be young professionals who are single or married with families.

"This festival is targeting a demographic who enjoys good music that you may not necessarily hear on mainstream radio," says Festival Director, Maceo Thomas.

Artists scheduled to appear include hip-hop artists Mello D & the Rados, Substantial, Jamma Wun and Christylez while soul artists Afi Soul, Dee Stone, Rogiers, Mycah Chevalier, and Jua Howard make appearances as well. The Uninterrupted Band and Lucky Dub Band will perform earlier in the day. More acts are scheduled to perform.
