The word "kindred" comes from a combination of "kin" and the Old English word "ræden," which comes from the verb meaning "to advise." That being said, we advise you to check out the newly announced inaugural Kindred Music and Culture Festival, because the lineup is straight fire.

The festival strives to celebrate blackness by highlighting some of the amazing influences the black community has had on global music, culture, and cuisine.

Detroit rapper Payroll is slated to headline, along with recent Metro Times cover girl Bevlove. Supakaine, Supercoolwicked, and WillieMacJr., are also on the bill, and up and coming trap artist Tiny Jag has just been added to the lineup, with more expected in the coming weeks. The festival will also include food and beverage vendors, as well as a marketplace and activities to be announced.

Kindred Fest starts at noon on Sat., July 21 at Detroit's Roosevelt Park.  Tickets are $25-$45 and can be purchased here.
