LETSGETFR.EE is a new Queens music carnaval with Missy Elliott, Wizkid, Anderson .Paak, Ozuna & more
LETSGETFR.EE is a new music carnaval coming to Queens' Flushing Meadows-Corona Park on August 20 and 21. It was created by AFROPUNK Festival founder and ex-head Matthew Morgan, alongside partner Jocelyn Cooper and the Anomaly agency, and the lineup is pretty amazing, with Missy Elliott, Wizkid, Anderson .Paak, Ozuna, Kali Uchis, Jorja Smith, Jhene Aiko, Flatbush Zombies, (A$AP) Ferg, Major Lazer Sound System, Bomba Estéreo, Kojey Radical, El Alfa, Mr. Eazi, Lido Pimienta, Bas, Beenie Man, Fousheé, GoldLink, Raveena, Bakar, Tiwa Savage, Audrey Nuna, Teezo Touchdown, Priya Ragu, Tems, Aluna, and more.
LETSGETFR.EE's mission "is to close the equity gap for Black, Brown, Asian, and other underrepresented people in the entertainment industry, with the aim of achieving a diversified workforce across all levels in the industry by 2030," and it's intentionally called a carnaval (rather than a festival), as it was inspired by Brazilian Carnaval and Caribbean sound system culture.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, March 9 at 10 AM, but first there's a presale for Queens residents that's underway right now. You can register for the presale here. A press release states, "Staying true to its commitment to equity, LETSGETFR.EE breaks the mold of traditional festivals by offering a 'choose your own adventure' ticketing structure and making ticket access affordable to every community that it celebrates."
