CLTure Music Festival announces lineup

Charlotte is quickly becoming a spot for small independent music festivals that showcase hot, up and coming national and regional acts. CLTure, an arts-oriented marketing, advertising and entertainment company, will hold CLTure Music Festival June 27 at Chop Shop in NoDa.

The lineup includes an eclectic mix of emerging indie rock, electronic, experimental, garage, roots-rock, and hip-hop artists. Philadelphia's Man Man will headline the show with Utah's harmony-driven Desert Noises (pictured). Raleigh indie-rockers the Love Language and electro-pop act Tow3rs, Charleston's Susto, and Asheville-based electronic duo RBTS Win and garage rockers the Tills represent the greater Carolinas.

Home grown Charlotte acts Late Bloomer, Pullman Strike, Rapper Shane (formerly Stranger Day), Elevator Jay, Modern Primitives, Miami Dice, and Stereoloud also perform along with DJ Ahuf and DJ Cody Hare.

The Saturday event begins at 4 p.m. and features live music on three stages. Food trucks and fashion and art vendors will also be on hand.

CLTure is no stranger to promoting local and independent music. It has put on the weekly NoDa Food Art Music Rally during the Spring and Fall, worked with Drumstrong in 2014, and organized 2013's Brewz Fest, as well as other local concert series.

CLTure's events focus on simultaneously promoting local businesses and arts and music while highlighting independent acts in particular. You can check out CLTure's online film, music, arts, and food coverage at http://clture.org/
