Soul will be in control at the 2013 Summer Spirit Festival once again taking over the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD on Saturday, August 3rd. This year's lineup adds some new ingredients into the mix with Hiatus Kaiyote, Black Alley, Rare Essence, Busta Rhymes and D'Angelo all scheduled to perform with Erykah Badu once again headlining and closing the show as she has in past years and funny man Mike Epps hosting. The 2013 Summer Spirit Festival presented by CD Enterprises is now in its seventh year and brings the worlds of soul, R&B, go-go and hip hop together unlike no other event in the DMV area. If you've been before, then you know that it's one nation under a groove at the annual outdoor festival. If you haven't been yet, then let this year be the year that you treat your eyes and ears to the live sounds of this talented roster of artists.
