One of the Summer’s best perks, are the many free (or close to free) concert series and music festivals that pop up in various markets across the country. Today, it was announced that Kanye West will host a free G.O.O.D. Music event on June 9th in NYC at a secret location. Now, as you may remember last Fall, Heineken hosted Nas, Cee-Lo and J. Cole at a secluded warehouse in NYC, so this Kanye/G.O.O.D. Music will more than likely be bigger and better. You may also remember that J. Cole came to Chicago for a Heineken date last summer, so expect more announcements in regards to other markets soon.
For more info on the event you can head to Heineken’s Red Star Access site.
