It’s been four years since Freight & Salvage, the small but potent (and mostly folk style) venue, hosted their festival extravaganza on the streets of Berkeley.
This festival was a big one for the Freight – they presented their first ever hip-hop artist – local rap legend Lyrics Born. They also had another smaller outdoor stage, a quickly rotating indoor stage that hosted a ton of amazing talent, face painting, vendors, food, a hip-hop class, and great fun for everyone!
The lineup included tons of local artists such as: OctoPretzel, Alphabet Rockers, Orchestra Gold, The Sampaguitas, Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra, Alabama Mike and Kid Andersen, Nic Clark, QUITAPENAS, Maurice Tani, Aki Kumar, Marina Crouse, The Sons of The Soul Revivers, and finally – Lyrics Born.
