Do you miss live music? Well the wait is over… on Saturday, Aug. 8, 2020 Ragers Only Music Fest welcomes some of the state’s most popular underground indie artists for a performance we won’t forget! The concert in Springfield will feature more than a dozen musical acts from the Miami Valley and Central Ohio areas.
Headlining the event is Tay Da Prince, nephew to local celebrity, John Legend.
This event marks the first time since COVID-19 spread that any of these artists will perform live. Although strictly regulated to comply with state gathering laws, this gig is expected to be one of the best live shows put on by independent creatives in a very long time. Featuring genres ranging from Hip-Hop, Rap, and EDM to Adult Alternative music.
Understanding your playlists are currently streaming the best mainstream music, here’s some names you won’t regret adding to your quarantine jams, straight from The Midwest.
Tay Da Prince– Releasing his most recent work with Uncle John is legendary in and of itself. In the new music video the pair advocate for change in society highlighting racial injustices in America. With more than 100K views on YouTube it’s only a matter of time before Tay Da Prince is charted with hits.
PAPI K– Currently streamed in more than 70 countries around the world. His career accelerated with the release of his most popular song “Beat The Block” featuring celebrity rapper Waka Flocka, earning him more than 500K listeners on Spotify and Apple Music.
VON GRAVES– Independent recording artist and the CEO of USIC Brands, headquartered in Columbus, OH. The “Dorm Muzik” rapper first went viral in 2012 when the college anthem dropped on YouTube and set the stage for his first studio album. Graves is an intricate storyteller with the ability to capture cinematic experiences. His sound appeals to both secular and religious tastes. As a graduate from Ohio University with a degree in English, the songwriter helps younger musicians to discover their sound.
A$IA– As Instagram and Tik-Tok pave way for creatives to engage with fans, she is rising as a media influencer embracing the time to adapt as an artist in the aftermath of COVID-19. She was crowned Columbus, Ohio’s winner of a month-long competition, Crowd Control, where the audience chooses their favorite performer. Her attitude on stage is mighty as she goes bar for bar like Young M.A. but can also acknowledge a time to be vulnerable.
EXCLUSIVE– Coming from Dayton, Ohio, this indie shared the stage with rap stars Da Baby, SadaBaby, and Trippie Redd earlier this month. His most popular Spotify releases including “Know Drip” and “Never Change” are catchy and shine light on the artist’s current potential to elevate.
And there’s more! Food vendors, local art displays, and an after party located at the Buckeye Sports Lodge. Those who attend the festival can use their wrist band to get into the after party for FREE. If you missed the festival but wish to attend the after party, there is a $5 cover fee at the door.
