Every August, we here at SoulBounce have a couple of things to look forward to. It's our birthaversary month, and it's also when the annual Summer Spirit Festival takes place. Now in its 14th year, the 2019 Summer Spirit Festival looks like it's going to be another can't miss event in the DMV area this summer.
After expanding to two days for the past couple of years, this year's festival downsizes back to one day, but that day is jampacked with talent. Headlining the 2019 Summer Spirit Festival is SoulBounce fave Anthony Hamilton. Our main man AHam last played the festival in 2015 and brought the house down when he did, almost showing up that year's headliner Erykah Badu. We fully suspect that he will let his soul glow once again and light up the Summer Spirit Festival stage for his first time headlining.
Leading up to Anthony will be a full day's worth of entertaining acts. Setting things off will be R&B up-and-comer Kyle Dion. There'll be no muting of go-go music that day with Ms. Kim and Scooby holding it down with Sirius & Company. GRAMMY winner PJ Morton will bring the soul, the funk and the fire with him. Meanwhile, dvsn will keep it cool and laid-back with their alternative R&B stylings. Also returning to the Summer Spirit Festival this year is soul man Raphael Saadiq who last played there in 2009. Last but certainly not least, Jhené Aiko will bring her feminine energy and sweet-but-street alternative soul to the stage.
The 2019 Summer Spirit Festival will take place on Saturday, August 3rd in Columbia, Maryland at Merriweather Post Pavilion. As in previous years, trust us when we say that you do not want to miss this festival. It's always a good time filled with good music, good food, good people, good shopping and good weather. Make plans to experience all of this goodness for yourself this August.
