5th Cosmic Slop Music Festival
Calling all rockers and lovers of rock music to save the date for the return of the Cosmic Slop Music Festival to Detroit on Saturday,October 14, 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Tangent Gallery/Hastings Street Ballroom, 715 E. Milwaukee Detroit, MI 48202. With a lineup of multicultural rock musicians, bands, aerial aerobatics, fire eaters, youth-oriented nonprofits and all things different, the festival has something for the whole family from 1 p.m. 8 p.m. After 8 p.m. the program changes to adults-only performances.
Named for Funkadelics (aka Parliament/P Funks) classic 1973 album Cosmic Slop, the festival is the worlds only intentionally multicolored rock festival and the first of its kind in the Midwest. Founded in 2011 by Detroit musician, Deekah Wyatt and a group of Black Detroit musicians, the Cosmic Slop Festival ran from 2011 to 2013 and became known as the one place for Black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern and Native Rockers to celebrate the music they love.
The first three festivals were such a huge success that many of us found ourselves much busier with gigs and touring as a result, says Founder/ Lead Organizer and musician, Deekah Wyatt, leader of rock band, Roxolydian (recently voted one of the 12 bands not to miss at the 2016 Hamtramck Music Festival Metro Times). We decided to take some time out to regroup and reorganize and now were back and ready to rock.
