On August 25th, 2012 the Philadelphia Chapter of the NAACP will host The “NAACP This Is My Vote Unity Music Fest” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from 6 PM-11 PM.
This event will be the first of its kind, bringing several genres of music together in one venue for the ultimate night of entertainment. The event will benefit the NAACP’s voter registration initiative.
The music fest will include performances from local Gospel choirs, R&B, Jazz, Spoken Word and Hip-Hop artists. In addition to the music, there will also be a Pan-Hellenic exhibition step show, fashion show and comedy show. Attendees will also be allowed limited access to the various exhibits in the museum on that night.
The purpose of this music fest is to energize Philadelphians to be a part of this election and to make sure they are not only registered to vote but prepared to vote in November. That includes ensuring that they have proper identification when they get to the polls. Some of the performers include the gospel choirs from Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church, Sharon Baptist and Bright Hope. The Urban Guerilla Orchestra will headline the old school R&B stage, along with a stage showcasing local hip hop artists including DJ Damage and Chill Moody with more performers to be announced.
The NAACP This Is My Vote Unity Music Fest will be held on Saturday, August 25th at the Philadelphia Museum of Art at 26th Street Benjamin Franklin Parkway Philadelphia, PA 19130.
Tickets for the music fest are $35 and include complimentary refreshments and parking. For more information or to purchase tickets call 215-978-7500 or visit www.ThisIsMyVotePhilly.org .
