The 2016 Funk Parade Initial Lineup Announced



The 2016 Funk Parade Lineup is here! Well, the initial lineup at least. Which is crazy, because the acts announced so far are AMAZING. Had they announced the full lineup, our minds may have exploded. Over 40 performers are scheduled to perform, including the likes of  go-go legends Rare Essence, the high-energy brass band Black Masala, Tropicaliente group Empresarios, and many many more. We at One Love Massive are very excited that a number of our Collective members are performing as well: DJ Ayes Cold, Footwerk, Aztec Sun, The Lucky So and So’s, All the Best Kids, Picnibus, and Jenna Camille.  There are also a number of exciting local acts like the Malcolm X Drummers, Elikeh, and Hip Hop Orchestra. There will be 12 outdoor performance areas (one sponsored by yours truly, One Love Massive, and Grindstone) and 15 different music venues. It’s going to be amazing.
