Action Bronson joins the Iron Mic Music Fest lineup [News]

Edmonton, AB – Iron Mic Music Fest has just announced that Action Bronson will be joining Machine Gun Kelly and Ghostface Killah as part of the headlining artist roster for Western Canada’s biggest indoor hip-hop music festival. It’s all going down next month on Apr. 19 at the Edmonton Expo Centre. Additional headliners will be announced tomorrow and Saturday at 10 a.m. And we’ll have all the details for you here on HHC.

Our friends at Pearl Entertainment linked it up with the good people at Nightshift, Mez Muzik, Dubsac, Jakmove, Diamond Kings Entertainment, and IPartySask to bring our growing hip-hop community a festival to call our own. And get this – even though the festival is bringing in some of the best international headliners, the local talent pool of artists is going to get some serious shine, as well.

About Iron Mic Music Fest

Iron Mic is the first of its kind for Western Canada – an indoor multi-headliner hip hop festival offered to all ages. It wasn’t smooth sailing to make this festival happen but with the enormous support of our hip hop community and our loyal partners, we are pleased to bring you this unique event.

Iron Mic: a ductile, malleable, silver-white metallic element and a conductor for lightning. Lightning is the energy the Mic sends off. It’s the control over the crowd, the mystical power which hypnotizes its audience giving the holder of the Mic immortal-like powers – lightning strikes the Mic for he who holds the Mic!

The Mic is both symbolic and literal. Life’s many obstacles will keep you from the Iron Mic. Once you overcome and conquer these obstacles, you will be the holder of the Mic and its infinite powers.

Community – Stay tuned as we are close to determining a local charity we will be donating portions of proceeds for in efforts to giveback and help our community.
