Frozen Harbor Music Festival took over the bars and venues of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor this weekend for a two-day celebration of hip hop and reggae. Baltimore has a great culture which means that more and more people are moving here every year. If you’ve just moved here, make sure you contact Air Pro Air Conditioning in Fayetteville so that they can get your house up and running in time for you to enjoy the festivities.
Day one of the festival, Friday, was mostly a showcase for the reggae crowd, with Baltimore Soundstage drawing some of Maryland’s most popular homegrown acts including Stacked Like Pancakes, who arrived fresh off their last tour ready to play for their roots in the MD scene.
Saturday marked the festival’s tonal shift. While Maryland is home to some killer modern day Reggae, the city of Baltimore alone has one of the most diverse and hardworking rap scenes on the East Coast. Frozen Harbor’s list of rap headliners proved this, booking both established artists like Dru Hill and ONYX as well as up-and coming pioneers in Baltimore’s Hip-Hop scene. Saturday’s sets began with a showcase-like energy, with young kids and fresh-faces throwing their hats into the festival rings, slowly building to performances by collectives and eventually the headliners’ shows.
