Third year in the making, Kindred Music & Culture Festival in Detroit, Michigan is nothing short of a celebration of arts and music.
Spending all day at Roosevelt Park, to experience a dope line up filled with Detroit artist:
Willie Mac Jr. Monalyse. Supa Kaine. Curtis Roach. Charity. Lana Ladonna. & many more
A day filled with vendors, live painting, DJ Sets, Live performances, and moments to just let go and be free.
Leah Hill, curator & Founder of Kindred Music & Culture Festival has become a voice for young black women in business and a true music connoisseur. Her goal for the festival is to bring young black creatives together, and to mirror a Detroit reminiscent of her childhood, full of life and excitement.
We spoke with Leah, to better understand her mission behind the festival.
1. What was the importance in creating an independent Music Festival in Detroit? -Creating an independent music festival is so important because it really does highlight local and independent talent. There are festivals popping up constantly across the country. A lot of the time the lineups almost mirror each other with the same artist again and again. A highly curated lineup is important to me. Creating this independent festival in Detroit is vital because even though there are so many young people starting media platforms, we do not have an established platform in the city to look to in order to find new talent.
2. What can we expect from Kindred Music Festival as it continues to grow? - As Kindred Music & Culture Festival grows I hope to bring regional and national acts to the stage. My goal for Kindred is to be the festival that gives a platform for the buzzing, up and coming artist. Every year I want people to come because they know this is an event where they can find the talent that's next up. You can expect consistent growth for Kindred Music and Culture Festival from the execution of the activations and the music talent presence.
Be sure to stay on the look out for next year's line up.
