Five Reasons To Attend Supafest
Before you even go there girl/boyfriend - we know
. The one, the only, the oh-em-gee amazing Missy Elliot has been scrapped from the line up. Oh, and P. Diddy isn't gonna be there either. But despite being Missy-less and Diddy-less, let's not lose sight of the fact that Supafest is still going to be one supa hawt festival. For those of you who are contemplating attending or are perhaps already ticket-holders and may be feeling ripped off, take a moment to reacquaint yourselves with why Supafest is still totally attendable.
FIVE REASONS TO ATTEND SUPAFEST
1: The lineup is still dope
T Pain, Ice Cube and Big Sean. Kelly Rowland, c'mon. Naughty By Nature 'came here to party, throw your hands up everybody - let's celebrate'. Agreed, Naughty By Nature, let's celebrate, because although the event dropped its two headline acts (no arguments, it was totally bad form) this is still a collection of urban legends that aren't mythical and are even better than the ‘90s Jared Leto film. Here's the rest of the line up.
2: Ticket price is fair
After extensive advanced mathematical equations, we have worked out that the Supafest ticket price means it only costs about $15 per artist. Seems pretty reasonable all of a sudden doesn't it? Is there another occasion coming up that involves seeing Lupe Fiasco, Kelly Rowland or Naughty By Nature performing live for the price of a four-pack of Cruisers? No siree, there is not. Not that we know of anyway. If there is, give us a heads up ‘cos we want in. Tickets to Supafest can be got here
3: Urban memories
There was a time when urban was it and a bit. None of this doof doof stuff (we are clearly 87 years old), it was all smooth vocals, carefully crafted rap and beats made for booty swingin', and booty swing we did. Supafest is essentially Urbanfest, R ‘n’ B fest, Rap fest‚ which in itself is super as we dust off our uber lowriding jeans, oversize tees/midriff tops and team them with cornrows and bling.
4: Get your swagger on
So, in relation to the previous point where we fondly recalled the good times we suggest that Supafest is a prime opportunity to relive your urban heyday. Watch the music video for 'Get Your Freak On' and shed a tear as instead of seeing Missy Elliot live you're now going to use her for your Supafest wardrobe inspiration. Bittersweet really. Confidence is key, so your swagger will need polishing. We recommend honing your skills in the streets, it’s where they all seem to do it in the movies
5: Festival season is winding up
Goodbye summer, hello festival drought. It's a fact of life that as the weather gets gradually mopey, music festivals become infrequent. Don't let your pride stand in the way of you having a killer time at a festival that is not only rare in that it is dedicated to urban artists, but is also one of the few major festivals left to attend in the foreseeable future. Go on, enjoy yourselves. You better be dancing like this:
