It’s Pride, It’s Parade Day, It’s Day 3 of the Festival

On Sunday, we have another spectacular line-up of music & art, and the festivities get started just around the time the parade ends.  Sunday’s DJs & performers will take us on a bit of a different trip with a little more electro, a hip hop beat, or two and of course that big pop remix, but we’re not trying to categorize Mr. Tedd Patterson. That would be impossible.

When Tedd steps to the decks a true musical journey will begin. Those who are familiar with his sets understand what to expect- a perfectly selected fusion of many dance music genres, and even a little bit of the unexpected.  Tedd’s long running residency at NYC’s Cielo is a mainstay in the dance music community and a place where dance music aficionados gather every month to experience Tedd’s creative, dynamic sets.  On the other hand, if you like the more popular vibe in today’s dance music sound, we have plenty of that as well.

We’re pleased to have Ms. Chaisley Lussier playing with us for the first time, Chaisley will be joining us from Philadelphia where she’s been creating a name for herself with her many talents. Though she hales from the city of brotherly love , NYC has a lot of love for Chaisley too. You can find her playing at some of the cooler spots around town quite regularly.

Next to take the stage will be AFP favorite Kevin Graves. When Kevin’s not remixing the latest pop chart buster, he’s traveling internationally spinning at top spots, creating major buzz and doing what he does best. Kevin is very active in the gay community and we know this is a special weekend for him and we’re happy to be sharing it with him.

Stepping on stage next to takeover on the ones and twos is another AFP veteran spinner, Bass Control (aka Dennis Sebayan).  When Dennis is not spinning around town he’s hosting his UMF Radio Show on Sirius and helping Ultra plan for its next big festival.  With much experience gigging at Ultra each year in Miami, we’re excited to hear his track selections for Artists4Equality!

Tunacola, our only scheduled live act on Sunday will take the stage at 8pm and we are jacked to have this popular, electro-pop hop group from Santiago Chile perform at the festival. The band is currently touring the U.S. with a high energy, infectious performance that’s not to be missed.  Tunacola’s style and flavor will be the perfect set up for our next performer, Roxy Cottontail.

Roxy has been making a name for herself over the past several years with her unique flair and style. Her ascending career is highlighted by features on popular television shows and important industry magazines, invitations to perform at national festivals and production opportunities with some of the biggest names in the biz.  We’re thrilled to have her perform at AFP’s Artists4Equality Festival!

When Tedd Patterson takes the stage for his closing set, the party will be in full swing with  high energy and a park full of smiling faces. Our celebration in support of equality and education will be coming to an end, but we will continue to fight for these same causes as a group and as individuals.
