2021 Black Festivals
After 2020 we need a whole year worth of breaks, and I think I have the perfect idea. Let's go festival hopping. and 2021 is jam packed full of Jam Rock Concerts and festivals that starts up when the earth wakes up in Spring, just like the ancestors used to do.
Good music has helped the whole lot of us deal with the quarantine and isolation forced on us by a deadly unseen enemy. Some of us have lost loved ones and had your lives utterly crippled by the events of this past period of despair. So, it would only be a good idea to celebrate life with live music, good friends, and maybe some good weed.
Below We have mapped out a guide to this next years festivals so you can plan accordingly.
