The first annual Triad for the Love of Music Festival unites the Triad community on Labor Day weekend with a star-studded celebration of music, culture, and diversity. As the open air of the scenic NewBridge Bank Park Stadium bubbles with indubitable vibes, the festival serves up a sonic bouillabaisse of rock, rap, country, folk, and R & B to appease ears of every ilk. Headlining the festivities, Grammy-winning hip-hop superstar Lupe Fiasco laser-beams audiences with his trademark lyrical funambulism and resuscitating beats. Other acts at the friendly festival include platinum-selling rockers Fuel, serenading the ballpark with post-grunge ballads and sunshine-tinged odes to hemorrhages. Chart-topping country crooner Lee Brice, graces the stage to yearningly belt tunes such as the hit single “Love Like Crazy,” which has spent more time at the top of the charts than the letter E in an optometrist’s barn. Keeping the day’s roster stocked with tip-top entertainers, Carolina Chocolate Drops melds jazz, pop, and funk into dance-inducing tapestries. Attendees should keep an eye on the fun-bloated lineup, as each day, new entertainers yearn to parachute into the festivities.
