Lincoln Park Music Festival

Lincoln Park, Newark

Through his work with the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District, Baye Adofo-Wilson served as Executive Producer of the Lincoln Park Music Festival, an annual multi-genre, musical event located within the park. The three-day music festival features hip-hop, jazz, gospel and dance music as well as an eco-vendor marketplace, and attracts more than 50,000 people. Under Adofo-Wilson’s leadership, the festival featured over 200 artists in its first seven years, bringing celebrities including James Moody, the Clark Sisters, Richard Smallwood, Ice T, Q-Tip, Loletta Holloway, Amiri Baraka, Redman, Sybil Lynch and Kurtis Blow to perform in Newark. The Lincoln Park Music Festival has become an essential part of Newark's culture and a can’t-miss event for attendees from the city, the surrounding region and beyond.
