Collective Minds showcases the talent of a phalanx of legendary Baltimore House DJ’s, who happen to be some of the best House Music DJ’s on earth. They fire the souls of die-hard House Headz, who come to Baltimore from all over the country for Collective Minds. The festival also features dozens of vendors providing everything from great food, to unique jewelry. And of course there’s House Music all night (and all day) long!
