The sixth annual SOURCE360 Conference and Festival is set for Aug. 15-18 with events happening in two locations in the city.

Produced by The Source Magazine and NorthStar Charities, Inc., the celebration will take over Brooklyn yet again, this time expanding into Harlem as well to provide alternating days of activities. The four-day family and education-oriented event will feature speaker panels, live music, special showcases, a block party with accompanying fashion show, an honorary “360 Icons” dinner and much more.

A vast majority of the festival is free to the public, with all events offering a full spectrum of performances and activations that engage the seven pillars of hip-hop: arts, music, fashion, sports, business, technology and community affairs.

The weekend is filled with hip-hop legends and emerging artists primed to make it one of the most memorable to date. Come out to see Rakim, Doug E. Fresh, MC Lyte, Angela Yee, DJ Enuff, Lil Cease, Dres, DDG, Jay Critch, Niko Brim, ARNSTAR MC, TJ Porter, Donshea Hopkins, Kyla Imani, DJ Nyla Simone, Deetranada, Jayy Grams, Yvng Swag, Kai Ca$h, PVRX, Cryssy Bandz and more.
