The NorthStar Group and The Source magazine will present the second annual SOURCE360 Festival Sept. 17 to 20.

Last year, Source magazine publisher, L. Londell McMillan, showcasing “the seven pillars of Hip-hop,” brought concerts, panels, underground artists and big names to his native borough. Attendees saw Wu-Tang (Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, GZA, U-God, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killah, Cappadonna and RZA), Dom Kennedy, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Lil’ Kim.

This year, performers include Waka Flocka Flame, Scarface, Faith Evans, Chase N. Cashe, Smoke DZA, Brand Nubians, Doug E. Fresh and Dead Prez.

Moderators of panels will include Tuma Basa (Spotify), Lenny Santiago (Roc Nation), Steve-O (Def Jam), Rob Markman (Genius) and other music-industry leaders.

“I’m going to engage the community through music, sports, fashion, film/TV, art, dance and technology,” said McMillan. “SOURCE360 is also focused on educating the youth and inspiring the community in numerous pro-social activations and programs.”

McMillan will also host a tribute party to the Notorious B.I.G.
