    Boston Urban Music Festival

    Presented by Mayor's Office of Arts, Tourism and Special Events at City Hall Plaza

    Boston Urban Music Festival

    The Honorable Thomas M. Menino and Hub Media are pleased to announce that the Boston Urban Music Festival will take place on Saturday, August 7th, from 3-7pm on City Hall Plaza. Formally known as the Peace Hip-Hop Festival, the Boston Urban Music Festival will feature a full spectrum of urban music including Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa with his charismatic and hammering execution of rhymes, and former Harvard student turned producer/songwriter/singer Ryan Leslie, nominated last year as “Best New Artist” and “Best Male R&B” artist at the BET Awards. The event kicks off with local flavor from Lynn lyricist M-Dot, who recently clinched the title of Best Hip-Hop Artist in the WFNX Boston 2010 Best Music Poll. Quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with, M-Dot is a main stay of college radio around the country. This young trio of bonafide star power is sure to deliver a show which will please every hip-Hop, R&B, Soul, and Pop lover from around the city and beyond. Again this event is free!
