Lovers of pop and hip-hop in Hampton Roads are familiar with Shaggy, the raspy-voiced on-air personality at WNVZ-FM (104.5). He's been a fixture at the station for years and he's clearly accumulated some clout among bigtime musicians.
It's nice to see that clout being put to good use. ShaggFest, an outdoor music festival with a distinctly Hampton Roads flavor, will take place at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex on Saturday, June 9.
The lineup listed on the event's website shows the following acts: Timbaland, Skillz, Teddy Riley and Blackstreet, Bison, Fam-Lay, Kevin Mac, J. Pharaoh & The Manhattan Project, City Voices, Kirko Bangz, T. Mills, Slim 112, Bei Maejor, Dev, VABP, Ray Nitti, A. Driver, Rekapse and Intalek.
The list of acts features platinum-selling R&B stars (Timbaland and Teddy Riley), acoustic indie rockers (Bison), a local country standout (Kevin Mac) and a number of up-and-coming local rock and hip-hop artists (City Voices, Rekapse and Intalek.)
Tickets to the all-afternoon event are $24.85 from Ticketmaster.
