Freedom Festival 

When: Thu., July 3, 9 p.m. 2014
Featuring a stellar lineup of locals Dine Krew, Burnell Washburn and CWMA winners Better Taste Bureau and DJ Matty Mo, the Freedom Festival will be the Salt Lake City kick-off party for a weekend of backyard barbecues, beers on the patio and blowing stuff up in honor of the Fourth of July. The Dine Krew homies have been extremely busy, with a new album that will be released later this year as well as several members of the group—including producer Piccolo and emcees Harrison Montgomery and Shelby Washington—soon to come out with solo releases. They put on a killer, high-energy set, as does rap trio Better Taste Bureau, who just released new album Outliers and will be opening for De La Soul and Rapsody & 9th Wonder at Twilight later this summer. Burnell Washburn’s thoughtful rap was heard most recently on his introspective new album, Gratitude. And DJ Matty Mo’s creative style on the turntables can always be relied on; make sure to catch him at Twilight when he opens for the Wu-Tang Clan later this month. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
