Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts Announces Star-Studded Light City 2018 Lineup

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) announced details for the third annual Light City, the nation’s first free large-scale light, music and innovation festival powering social change. This year’s festival features headlining performances by hip-hop legend Grand Master Flash, funk favorites G. Love & Special Sauce, and New Zealand R&B songstess Kimbra.

The theme for 2018 is “More Love, More Lights!” as Light City expands to three weekends with Neighborhood Lights April 6-8, the Light City art and music festival April 14-21 and the Labs@LightCity social innovation conference April 18-21. The light of Light City spreads to touch even more Baltimore neighborhoods through expanded Neighborhood Lights and Brilliant Baltimore programs and a new “Eye on Charlie” initiative. In addition, Labs@LightCity, the festival’s social innovation conference, generates a glowing ecosystem of ideas and learning during the day, before the bright lights and live entertainment make Baltimore shine at night. Light City is fully accessible, free and open to all. For more information, visit our website.
