Hip-hop luminary Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey) and Grammy Award-winning R&B singer Chrisette Michele will headline the 2nd annual DC Love Fest on May 10 at DAR Constitution Hall.
Songstress/lyricist Maimouna Youssef will serve as co-host of the music festival, which will also serve as the D.C. leg of Okayplayer's official 15th birthday celebration. More artists are expected to be added to the line-up and announcements will be made at a later date.
Last year's festival was headlined by D.C. native Raheem DeVaughn and Marsha Ambrosius.
In addition to the line-up of musical performances, DC Love Fest houses vendors, boutique trunk shows, and offers food, bars, and VIP areas. This year's festival is sponsored by Carolina Kitchen, BEAM, Buick and Okayplayer.
