BAMS Festival is BACK –
and it’s Bigger and Bolder Than Ever!

Join 10,000 friends at Franklin Park’s Playstead Field for two days of R&B, funk, soul, hip hop, house and more performed by nationally acclaimed artists and homegrown talent. Immerse yourself in connection all while discovering the artistry of Black and Brown performers as they bring their culture and creativity to Boston’s largest green space.

In addition to the main stage performances, the festival also includes Rep Your City, a visual art exhibition, a Vendor Village showcasing local Black-owned businesses, the chance to learn Afro-diasporic dance styles from local Black choreographers – and Soul Food Row where food trucks will dish out international fare.
