Cousin Stizz Announces The Inaugural Commonwealth Fest

In many ways Cousin Stizz has been a prime example of what happens when you focus. And that focus ha brought him to a brand new stage, festival curator. The Dorchester, MA rapper has just announced the lineup for the first Commonwealth Fest, a new two-day music festival, scheduled for the weekend of September 16 and September 17 at Bellforge Arts Center in Medfield.

“Commonwealth Fest is a representation of not just the city and its culture, but the region as a whole,” explains Stizz. “We’re bringing together some of the best and brightest hometown talents, brands and experiences, plus some friends from outside New England, too. A big topic we’ve always discussed is how we bring Boston to the world and simultaneously let the world into Boston, to have outsiders see the city and the region for what it really is, not just what they think they know. Commonwealth Fest is that – it’s us at its core, but it’s also a bridge that will connect our
home base to the rest of the world for years to come. This is our way of saying thank you for everything.”

Michael Christmas, BoriRock, Jiles (of Van Buren Records), Avenue, kei, Clark D, Nay $peaks, Tyler Loyal, and Nino Francis are among the stars from the area who will grace the stage. Stizz will close out the first day along with national headliners like Buddy, Kenny Mason, and Tony Shhnow. Sunday will be left in the able hands of Stay Silent, as the provide a lineup of the area’s most known DJ’s for the SPREAD LOVE FUNCTION.

Two-day passes and individual tickets for Saturday and Sunday go on sale today at 10 a.m.
