The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts announced that Grammy Award-winning artist Anderson.Paak will be headlining the main stage on Sept. 22 at this year’s Artscape Festival.
When the list of headliners for the three-day weekend event was first announced in August, singer and songwriter Kelly Rowland was scheduled to hit the stage on the first day, but this has since changed. Other artists such as Niles Rodgers & CHIC , along with Dr. Madd Vibe featuring Angelo Moore are due to hit the stage during Saturday’s portion of the festival.
In addition to Paak now headlining Friday’s portion of the festival, it has also been announced that an immersive fashion experience called “Project Artscape” will be offered this year. The exhibit is inspired by the vibrant fashion community in Charm City and will highlight local up-and-coming and professional designers that are bringing their creativity to center stage.
Baltimore’s Artscape is America’s largest free outdoor art festival and is scheduled to take place Sept. 22-24 from the 1300 to 1800 blocks of Charles Street and Mount Royal Avenue. This year’s festival is full of exciting visual artists, musicians, culinary delights and interactive family-friendly activities.
