It was recently announced that comedian HAHA Davis will be hosting the show and that multi-platinum record producer, Mannie Fresh will serve up the music as this year’s DJ. The organizers of the event have also announced that Marsha Ambrosius will be the featured musical performer.
“The mission of StompFest is to immerse the Gulf Coast in contemporary African-American art, dancing, and stepping blended with a mix of spoken word, live music, and visual artistry while showcasing the influence this rich culture has on Black Greek-Letter Organizations (BGLO),” the organizers wrote Watch The Yard.
“The exciting thing about StompFest is that it is not just for college students, its not just for the fraternities and sororities its not just for the people who may follow the things that we’ve done in the community its really for everybody. You can come to StompFest and may have never even knew about a fraternities and sororities and you are going to fall in love with the magic the same way that I did when I was at FAMU,” StompFest chairperson, Bryan Freeman stated at a press conference.
StompFest is one of the large events during Foo Foo Fest which will be held from October 31 – November 11, 2019. The highly-anticipated arts and culture festival is one of the largest of its kind in the Southeast.
