BALTIMORE — Baltimore AFRAM Festival announces Baltimore's A1 Chops, R&B Singer Kiana Lede, and Bad Boy Records' Quincy Brown, Niko Brim, Christian “King” Combs and Justin Combs as the additional Saturday acts joining the festival line up.

In May, Mayor Young and BCRP announced Sevyn Streeter, Rick Ross, Teddy Riley, Guy, Dru Hill and Wreckx-n-Effect as the 2019 headlining acts.

“The AFRAM Festival remains Baltimore’s premier family-oriented celebration of African-American culture, community and performance art,” said Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young. “We invite not just Baltimoreans but everyone, young and old, to come experience a jam-packed weekend that honors the unique experience of African-Americans in Baltimore. Our city’s culture of black excellence is no secret and we are happy to have this annual event to display and celebrate it.”

The 2019 festival returns to Druid Hill Park for its 43rd year on Saturday, Aug. 10 and Sunday, Aug. 11.

The AFRAM Festival is free and open to guests of all ages.
