Erykah Badu Scheduled To Perform at Funk Fest 2012

R&B star Erykah Badu is among the talented lineup of artists who will perform at Funk Fest 2012. Funk Fest is an annual outdoor festival that celebrates old-school funk, R&B, rap and soul music, and it takes place at several different locations throughout the South. The festival is celebrating its 18th anniversary this year. Funk Fest had very humble beginnings. It began as a small concert in an outdoor venue in Mobile, Alabama. Today, the festival attracts thousands of music lovers each year from all across the country.

Badu is set to play three dates at Funk Fest, and each show will be at a different venue. Her first show will be held at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, Florida on April 6. The other artists slated to perform on that date are Fantasia and Evelyn "Champagne" King. Badu will then perform at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville, Flordia on May 12. The other artists scheduled to perform on that day are Ledisi, Loose Ends and Doug E. Fresh. And her final Funk Fest show will be held at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater on May 19 in College Park, Georgia. The other artists who will perform on that date are Special Ed, Loose Ends and Raheem Devaughn. For more Funk Fest info, go to their website.
