Sure, there are plenty of music festivals around Maryland. But on September 15, we’ll have one right in our own backyard: the Charm City Music Festival.
“I’ve been a promoter here for 15 years and always wanted to do a festival downtown,” says Paul Manna, of 24-7 Entertainment, who is organizing the event. Performers include Weezer, Flogging Molly, Stephen Marley, and Eve 6. But Manna wanted to feature local musicians, too, like the All Mighty Senators, pictured. “My vision from the beginning was to incorporate as much local visibility as possible,” he says.
The festival, taking place on the Harbor East waterfront, will also include a crab picnic area and electronic-dance tent. “I want to create a good party atmosphere,” he says. “I hope this is the first of many to come.”
