It’s officially festival season, and while the weather is getting itself together, you too can act accordingly by adding the 2017 Los Angeles Soul Music Festival to your calendar. The festival is a three-day weekend full of food, fun and music at Exposition Park from July 14-16, 2017.

Saturday, July 15th will see BJ The Chicago Kid, Kindred The Family Soul, Avant, Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh and Anthony Hamilton dominate the stage until Tyrese closes the day out. The last day of the festival on Sunday, July 16th wraps the soulful festivities up with Teedra Moses, Carl Thomas, After 7, Tony! Toni! Toné!, Musiq SoulChild and Blackstreet Featuring Teddy Riley & Dave Hollister.
If all this good music on tap isn’t enough and you’re in still looking for more, the festival includes vendors selling their wares, lots of food options and beer/wine gardens for those who like to partake in adult beverages.
Last year’s inaugural festival was held at the Autry Museum in Griffith Park in Los Angeles and featured the likes of Marsha Ambrosius, Eric Benét, Joe, Conya Doss and Lalah Hathaway to name a few. Based on the lineup this year, we say with pure confidence that you can’t really go wrong.
