Iron Mic Music Fest announces another headliner: Ghostface Killah [News]

Edmonton, AB – Yesterday we told you all about the recently announced Iron Mic Music Fest going down in Edmonton on Apr. 19. And at 5 p.m. today, Iron Mic released news that Ghostface Killah is the second headlining artist at the festival, along with yesterday’s announcement of Machine Gun Kelly.

Iron Mic Music Fest is Western Canada’s biggest indoor hip-hop music festival. Western Canada’s hip-hop scene has seen so much growth over the last few years. So our friends at Pearl Entertainment, Nightshift, Mez Muzik, Dubsac, Jakmove, Diamond Kings Entertainment, and IPartySask got together to bring us a crazy stacked lineup of hip-hop heavyweights. We’re long overdue for this, am I right? And Iron Mic Music Fest is delivering the goods. Additional headliners will be announced tomorrow at 5 p.m., as well as on Mar. 14 and Mar. 15 at 10 a.m. And we’ll have all the details for you here on HHC.

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.
