Giving a leg up for music inclusivity, an intensely electric show awaits Dutdutan 23’s massive crowd regulars on both nights. Audiences are in for a treat as renegade band (hed) PE, a.k.a. Planet Earth shoots everyone with a dose of “G-punk”, a fusion of punk rock and Gangsta rap. See them perform some of their best, most mosh-worthy tracks. A livewire roster of music icons will be performing, including Greyhounds, Wilabaliw, and Urbandub. Also taking the spotlight are performances by word blacksmith and true poet Gloc-9, groundbreakers and master storytellers Flow G and Skusta Clee.
