The Art of Cool Fest 2016 is less than one month away. It's going down in Durham, NC the weekend of Friday, May 6th-Sunday, May 8th, and the time is now to get your tickets if you haven't already and finalize your travel plans if you're visiting from out of state.
For the past couple years, AOC Fest has proven to be quite the draw for out-of-towners who make their way to Durham to enjoy a weekend of dope live music from jazz, progressive R&B and soul artists galore. One of the largest contingencies to travel down to NC to get their groove on is from the Washington, DC area. DMV music lovers have found a home away from home in Bull City at the AOC Fest.
As we here in the DMV gear up for this year's festivities, SoulBounce has partnered up with DSE Live for The DMV Cool Out, the Official AOC Fest DMV Happy Hour Mixer. Come through District hot spot Marvin on Friday, April 22nd for happy hour from 5 p.m.-7:30 p.m. to kick it with DMV area "Cooligans" and pre-game for the Art of Cool Fest a couple weeks later. This event isn't just for those who've previously attended AOC Fest, but for anyone who'll be venturing to the festival for the first time this year, those who are interested in learning more or anyone who simply wants to vibe and chill after a long work week.
The DMV Cool Out is free to attend and there'll be happy hour drink and food specials. RSVP at Eventbrite and come out to show just how much #DMVlovesAOC.
