Historically, Portland’s amazingly vibrant music scene has been known for producing exceptional rock bands of various genres—“Old Portland” and its gritty punk-influenced rock, and “New Portland’s” more sensitive indie and folk music—but rarely do the city’s RnB and hip hop scenes get much love.
Swing by the kick off party tonight at White Owl!
Now in its 8th year, the Soul’d Out! Festival has mirrored Stumptown’s rising RnB and hip hop scenes growth and has consistently brought top notch artists from all over the world to our fair city.
This year’s festival is no expectation as the lineup is absolutely stacked top to bottom with a lineup heavy on diversity both in terms of the performers and the music they traffic in. Primarily run by and featuring people of color, Soul’d! Out’s existence and continued success certainly challenges the notion as Portland as a lily white city.
