In a city like Miami, music festivals come and go frequently, but often they take place in tourist- friendly locations. These major events rarely happen where the working class locals actually live and play. With the People Matter Festival that is all changing by giving Liberty City it’s first free Hip-Hop music festival. Radio veteran and the host of 103.5 the Beat’s afternoon drive show, Papa Keith, saw the need to bring a world class event to a community that is often neglected on many levels. The nationally syndicated radio host has teamed up with Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jean Monestime to produce a memorable community event that will have everyone in the county talking.
ThePeople Matter Fest is a vehicle from the radio host’s “Papa Keith 4 People Matter” or #PK4PM millennial movement and social media campaign. If you’re not sure what to expect at this year’s People Matter Festival, don’t worry. We’ve given you six reasons you need to have your butt at Gwen Cherry Park on June 16th.
