Around 200 music acts are set to perform at this year’s Arts, Beats & Eats festival, including some of our 1990s and mid-2000s faves.
Remember “This is How We Do It”? Montell Jordan, who sings the '90s R&B hit, is among this year’s festival headliners. He’s joined on the Jim Bean National stage by hip-hop legend Rob Base, alt-rockers 311, rapper Flo Rida, early 2000s rock band Chevelle, and funk group Average White Band.
The noticeably male-dominated lineup was announced Tuesday. A host of acoustic sets, local musicians, and electronic DJs are also slated to perform.
Arts, Beats & Eats will be celebrating 25 years for this year’s Labor Day festival, which takes place Sept. 2-5 in Downtown Royal Oak. Beyond music, it features a juried art show with over 150 artists and more than 50 restaurants and food trucks.
