2013 is the first year for the Fresh Fest in Louisville Kentucky.
The event is similar to the original Fresh Fest of the 80’s with groups like Run DMC, Whodini, Fat Boys etc. being that it will embody old school hip-hop but it’s not the same. Fresh Fest will not only showcase old school hip hop, but R&B groups from the 90’s and beyond.
Headlining the first annual Louisville Fresh Festival is Naughty By Nature. Also performing is “The Alumni.” The Alumni is a rap collective of hip-hop artists from the ‘90’s which are Chubb Rock, Monie Love, Dana Dane, Kwame & Special Ed.
Hosting this inaugural event is former Yo! MTV Rap’s host and now Sirius/XM show on Backspin 46 is Ed Lover!
The festival is Aug. 4, at the Belvedere. Gates open at 5 p.m., the show is 6 to 11 p.m.
