Raury Announces Lineup for Raurfest 2016
For the third year in a row, Raury is attempting to celebrate his birthday with as many adoring friends, family and fans as possible as the Stone Mountain, Ga. artist announces the 2016 Raurfest lineup.
This year's lineup features Raury's Pro Era friends Joey Bada$$ and Kirk Knight as well as Lion Babe, Kilo Kish and more artists to be announced. And what's different about this year's show is that the fest is completely free! The all-ages festival is being put on by The LoveRennaissance Agency and all fans need to do to gain general admission is RSVP. Right on brand with Raury's "Love Wins" festival theme, Raurfest 2016 will also count as a charity event. This year's proceeds are going toward the Atlanta school system and organizers encourage attendees to bring clothes to donate to the homeless.
Raury made the original announcement of this year's lineup on his birthday, June 10. The Indigo Child, now 20 years old, started the tradition of holding a festival to celebrate his 18th born day back in 2014.
Raury's 2015 was something of an anomaly in 2015 for his genre blending folk/rap sound. After garnering comparisons to OutKast's Andre 3000 and receiving industry co-signs from Kanye West, the former XXL Freshman and Columbia Records signee dropped his major label debut, All We Need, in October of 2015.
Presented by LVRN, the festivities go down in Atlanta, Ga. on Saturday, July 2. RSVP and get special meet and greet tickets here.
