Festival season is officially upon us and the Summertime in the LBC Festival, the first festival of its kind to spring up in Long Beach, has just announced their first lineup and let me tell you you’re going to want to be there. The list boasts of artists like legendary rappers the Wu-Tang Clan, 50 CENT, G-UNIT and YG. Other acts set to be performing this year include Long Beach musicians Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic, DJ Quik. Check below for the entire itenerary for the show.
The Festival is taking place on Saturday, Aug. 5 at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday May 19 at 10 a.m. PST. via their official website. Tickets will start at $75 and go up to $95 plus fees.
At the festival you’ll be able to find delicious food you will have serious trouble finding anywhere else, all exclusively by black-owned businesses. You’ll be able to get your grub on at a number of places, including the famous Trap Kitchen, All Flavor No Grease, Taco Mell, A Little Taste of Chyna and Three Stakxs Kitchen. Even bring the little ones at home to enjoy, as concert curators encourage music lovers of all ages to attend the hip-hop festival and get a little taste of both the new and old school. Check out the rest of the performers for Summertime in the LBC below.
Wu-Tang Clan performed on another huge festival stage this year, at SXSW 2017 alongside Weezer and Polica. You can click here to watch footage of Wu-Tang Clan playing alongside Erykah Badu and Redman at SXSW this year.
Festival headliner 50 Cent also performed at SXSW but a couple years ago in 2014. At a more recent show last April, 50 Cent punched a woman after she pulled him into the crowd, but invited her onstage following the incident.
