Roots Festival schedule released; Talib Kweli to close festival Saturday night
Talib Kweli, Chuck Brown and Anthony David will perform Saturday at Baltimore's first Roots Festival.
The multi-faceted event, which started June 22 and also includes an outdoor festival and workshops at community centers in West Baltimore and MICA, is meant to draw attention to the area in West Baltimore affected by the unsuccessful "Highway to Nowhere" project.
On Saturday, it's the music portion of the event, which will take place over the 52 acres of green space that sits atop the "Highway to Nowhere," specifically at Franklin and N. Gilmor streets.
The schedule for the main stage, where the headliners will perform, is below. Organizers recently posted it on the festival's website.
3 p.m. - Chuck Brown
5 p.m. - Anthony David
7 p.m. - Sunni Patterson
7:30 p.m. - Southern Roots Collective
9 p.m. - Talib Kweli
There will also be two other stages. Organizers have a comprehensive schedule of other acts on their website.
