The year may be coming to a close, but one of the most soulful music celebrations of 2022 has yet to take place. Closing out the month of December, Mary J. Blige, Jazmine Sullivan, Carl Thomas, Anthony Hamilton, Lauryn Hill, Case and Dru Hill are set to perform at the Miami Funk Fest in Florida. Joining Sullivan, Thomas, Hill and several others, Ying Yang Twins, Jeezy, T.I. and Rick Ross are set to perform as well.
“In 1994, nearly 5,000 people attended a small, old-school music festival in Mobile, Alabama. At that time, no one knew how large the event would grow or how long it would last,” a statement from FunkFest reads.
“Funk Fest was formed to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Old School Music and has grown into a celebration of human expression. It is the mission of Funk Fest to provide the African – American community access to a means of expression that promotes social consciousness, positive entertainment and personal fulfillment.”
Miami FunkFest is scheduled to take place at the Miami Dade County Fair & Expo Center on December 30-31, 2022. The complete lineup of the two-day event is available below.
