This year’s Funk Fest will be a throwback to old school funk, R&B, rap and Go-Go music.

The concert will be held at Memorial Stadium, 310 N. Kings Drive, on Sept. 21 at 5 p.m. Gates open at 3 p.m. The line-up includes Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, EU, Dru Hill, Rakim, BBD and Charlie Wilson.

 

Funk Fest began 19 years ago with a concert in a small, intimate outdoor venue in Mobile, Alabama. It is now attracts music enthusiasts from all over the country and is held in five cities: Atlanta, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa.

 

“I’m excited to bring Funk Fest to Charlotte,” said Leo Bennett, CEO of VEP. “Music has a way of taking people back in time. And musical guest like Charlie Wilson will have you trapped in a time zone.”

Tickets for Funk Fest can be purchased at No Grease! barber shop, 333 East Trade St. and DTLR clothing store, which has locations in Northlake Mall, Carolina Place Mall, Westerly Station and East Town Market. To charge by phone, call (877) 993-8499.  For more information, visit funkfest2013.com.
