Ghostface Headlines Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival
The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is an annual event that takes place over five days in June. This year’s concert will be headlined by Ghostface Killah, who will perform on the event’s final day, June 23. “Ghost is simply in his own category. His track record of hits is over 10 years long,” says Festival Chair, Wes Jackson. “He has rocked with everyone from Beyonce to MF Doom. Who else can say that? His versatility and borderless creativity is exactly what the BHF is about.” This year’s festival takes place at two locations. On June 7 and 14, the event will be held at powerHouse Arena in Brooklyn. On June 21, 22 and 23, the concert then moves to Brooklyn’s Empire Fulton Ferry State Park. Besides Ghost, artists such as Consequence, Skillz and Tanya Morgan will also perform. “Ghost is an excellent addition but we are not done yet,” says Festival Director Alma Geddy-Romero. “In the next few weeks we will be announcing some legendary names from the past as well as some outstanding new artists. Last year we introduced Lupe Fiasco to Brooklyn and brought Big Daddy Kane home. Look for more of the same this year.” For more information on The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, visit www.brooklynbodega.com.
