A few thoughts:

  • SWV, Clipse, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Jazmine Sullivan, and GRACE JONES are bucket list-worthy acts.
  • It’s a bit interesting to see the festival back in Virginia Beach, after Pharrell moved it to the nation’s capital due to his cousin, Donovan Lynch, being murdered by their police department in 2021.
  • Clipse… and Lil Wayne… on the same bill? I mean, I’m sure they won’t be performing on the same day… but still.
  • Did I mention GRACE. GOT. DAYUMED. JONES. is performing?
