The Opportunity

An evolution of the Peace Hip Hop Festival, the Boston Urban Music Festival (BUMF) offers a view of the urban music scene in and around Boston celebrating the best of Hip-Hop, R&B, Funk and Soul. The festival attracts 40,000 attendees each year and promises to be just as big in 2014 with Talib Kweli as the headlining act.

The pre-party at Good Life on August 23rd will feature The Arcitype and Mr. Fritz, and ties in with the monthly event Fresh Produce.
