2 Days of Black Joy

BAMS Festival is BACK –

and it’s Bigger and Bolder Than Ever!

Join 10,000 friends at Franklin Park’s Playstead Field for two days of R&B, funk, soul, hip hop, house and more performed by nationally acclaimed artists and homegrown talent. Immerse yourself in connection all while discovering the artistry of Black and Brown performers as they bring their culture and creativity to Boston’s largest green space.


This year, the event will be headlined by multi Grammy-nominated rapper, Rapsody, and acclaimed singer-songwriter, BJ the Chicago Kid. They will lead an eclectic lineup of world-class DJs and high energy local talent. View performer profiles below!


In addition to the main stage performances, the festival also includes Rep Your City, a visual art exhibition, a Vendor Village showcasing local Black-owned businesses, the chance to learn Afro-diasporic dance styles from local Black choreographers – and Soul Food Row where food trucks will dish out international fare. View the full event offerings below!


The festival is open to the public of all ages.

This year's festival is pay what you can. No payment is required for entry but any support that can be given helps the festival continue to run.
