Queens Theatre at Flushing Meadow Corona Park
Down the road from Louis Armstrong's home and at the site of the World's Fair, Queens now has a festival worthy of Louis' immense cultural legacy and the Wonderful World he celebrated in his music.
This year’s festival will be headlined by legendary Queens rapper, Action Bronson. Bronson, who shares a home borough with Armstrong and has been hailed over the last decade as “one of the most promising prospects in New York hip-hop” (NYT), Bronson is a fitting artist to host the celebration of music’s greatest innovators. The rapper’s flamboyant phraseology, explosively charismatic nature, and entrepreneurial spirit make him one of the most exciting acts in the music world today.
He will be joined by eight-piece brass ensemble The Soul Rebels, who continue to chart new territory blending tones of funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock. Okayplayer writes that the Rebels are doing their part in “sublimating the homogeneous tones of the contemporary urban music landscape with the lush instrumentation of our culture’s root.”
