Each year, Funk Fest pulls a multitude of people to The Grounds for a day filled with the best R&B, funk, hip-hop and soul. Funk Fest 2015 will be a sonic time capsule filled with some of the most memorable urban artists from the ‘80s and ‘90s. Mobile Funk Fest boasts a line-up filled with headliner-level entertainment.
Many consider the 2 Live Crew reunion to be one of the best reasons to attend Funk Fest. Even though this hip-hop collective earned notoriety with their controversial album “As Nasty As They Wanna Be,” their reputation for no-holds-barred lyricism broke out with the album “Move Somethin’,” which contained memorable tracks such as “Do Wah Diddy” and “S and M.” Throughout the years, 2 Live Crew has shown no mercy and made no concessions with their music. This line-up will include infamous front man Uncle Luke (Luther Campbell), Brother Marquis and Fresh Kid Ice.
In addition, Bel Biv Devoe will bring their “Poison” and Salt & Pepa will make the crowd “Push It.” Eighties dance club superstars Cameo will get the crowd grooving, and Doug E. Fresh will prove why he is the “World’s Greatest Entertainer” with his beat box skills.
