World Music Festival
Saturday, September 15, 2018
1pm to 7pm
High Rock Reservation, Lynn

This year’s World Music Festival, organized by the Highlands Coalition and partners, including KIPP, will take place under High Rock Tower as opposed to the waterfront park adjacent to Seaport Landing, as in years past.

In addition to a diverse lineup of performers, the festival will have art workshops, art vendors, food for sale and the tower will be open free for views of the city and ocean.

The festival is also dedicated to the late Aretha Franklin, and the Hutchinson Family Singers, vocal in civil rights, and who gave their land to create High Rock Reservation.
