Artists performing this year will Chali2na of alt. hip-hop group Jurassic 5, DJ Qbert and Charleston’s own Dubplates, Guilt Ridden Troubadour and Rebirth Brass Band.

Per COVID-19 regulations, masks will be mandatory and individuals who have been exposed to coronavirus 14 days prior to the event are recommended to stay home. 20-by-20 foot camp sites will be provided for groups of eight or fewer, and 10 feet will be place between each campsite.

Guests are encouraged to bring outside food, drinks, chairs, tents and insect repellant.
