Ab-Soul to headline East Van Summer Jam with BJ The Chicago kid and more [News]

Vancouver, BC – It’s becoming an annual tradition to throw a ‘hood party in the park every summer in Vancity; Timbre Concerts and The Music Tree are setting out to do just that with the second East Van Summer Jam.

TDE’s own Ab-Soul will headline the event on July 4th at Strathcona Park with special guests Mayer Hawthorne, Kelela, BJ The Chicago Kid, Esta (of Soulection) and locals The Boom Booms, SJS (Slow Jam Sundays), Kinnie Starr, Star Captains, and Chin Injeti & the Lifetimes.

Proceeds from the festival will support Fresh Roots, an organization that teaches local youth about growing food, and the Bavubuka foundation, which uplifts the youth of Uganda through art and hip-hop.

Beer garden will be sponsored by Red Truck Brewing with plenty of fun food trucks and vendors on spot. Cop tickets ASAP at the link here. All ages are welcome but must be 19+ to enter the beer garden. Now you know what’s good in the ‘hood.
