 It's that time of the year for the 6th Annual Music Festival by the Lake in Lorain, Ohio. This year's headliner is The Deele and we're currently looking for Sonicbids artists to play sets throughout the festival. Best known for an original line-up that included super hitmakers Antonio 'L.A.' Reid and Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds.
