Sparkfest - Over 40 Hip Hop Acts this Sat at Pike Room
Sparkhop's 2nd Annual Sparkfest will play host to over forty diverse emcees & bands from throughout the state of Michigan on August 4th, 2012 for an all day hip hop, art, & fashion event. An early day focus on local art & mid afternoon fashion presentation showcasing Michigan based clothing brands Collective, Epyon Royal, Slubbclub, Green Mitten, & Strung Out Apparel will lead the transition into a full day of live entertainment across two stages. This years event is once again located inside of The Crofoot in downtown Pontiac, MI & will take place in the Pike Room & Vernor's Room stages.
