Beginning July 10, the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival will pack a whole season’s worth of programming into one long weekend.

Things will heat up on opening night with a concert by Crown Heights native Buckshot and Mecca the Ladybug from Digable Planets at the Masonic Temple in Fort Greene. The following day, the powerHouse Arena in DUMBO will host an evening of emerging talent (and free beer!), but the main event is on Saturday, July 12: family-friendly music and events, followed by a 4 pm concert headlined by KRS-One (pictured). An after party at Southpaw will take the festival into the wee hours of the morning.

“The total package is stronger,” Wes Jackson, the executive director of the festival. “Last year, we were driven by our headliner. This year, we’re more well-rounded and have a lot of developing acts. There’s a mix of dynamics.”

The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival takes place July 10-12 at several locations. Tickets are $10 and up. For a schedule, call (718) 354-8777 or visit
