This Saturday, April 24, the ROSE FEST Music Festival will be the first post-lockdown music festival I will attend in person! I would not say it is a post-COVID festival as the virus is obviously still there but the event will be COVID-compliant, with masks and appropriate social distancing.
Located in Orange County, the Rose Fest sounds like a mini Rolling Loud with a hip-hop-star-studded lineup, featuring some big names and next up emerging acts: Mozzy, Rubi rose, Asian Doll, Eric Bellinger, Day Sulan, Stunna Girl, 1TakeJay , Black Fortune, TMG Fresh, Jaddah Blue, 777 God, KendyX, RY, Abbey Nicole, Float Lord, Rizz, Marissa Ford, and more special guests, and sounds by Asia Shabazz, DJ Skyhighbaby & Power 106 FM’s DJ Carisma.
The Rose Fest Music Festival originally came into fruition over one year ago by founder’s creative director Phillip Riaan and rising artists, entertainers RY & KendyX to create a platform for emerging musicians. But the most admirable part of this event is that 100% of proceeds will the donated to Avalon Carver Community Center, a network center located in South Los Angeles that provides education services, home improvement services, and substance abuse services for people who live in Los Angeles County. Built on the vision of community leader Mary B. Henry, the agency has become a centerpiece of the diverse community fabric of the neighborhood and met the needs of its growing and ever-changing community.
‘We’re really excited to create this moment for California because our community needs this beam of light during these unusual times,’ says co-founder Phillip Riaan. ‘It has been a tough year, a year that has shed light on the health and economic disparities in Black and Brown communities, so I’m happy we’re able to make this experience that looks out for many communities. Not only was the concert essential to us because of the cause, but it also provides a platform for up-and-coming artists to be able to see their name in lights and not have to wait on someone to allow them to because they are trending on social media.’
Tickets for this music festival that gives back to the community, shines the light on emerging artists, and collaborates with established artists are on sale here.
