Funk Fest Charlotte

When: Sat., Aug. 12, 2-11 p.m. 2017

Music-festival lineups don’t get better than this: The exquisite Erykah Badu shares the event with Southern rap pioneers Goodie Mob on a beautiful (we hope) Saturday under a clear (we hope) Carolina-blue sky. That would be enough in itself to get your butt (and mind) up and shaking, but there’s more: Babyface will be in the house, and so will Bobby Brown and Jagged Edge and ever-reliable old-school beatboxer Doug E. Fresh.

Price: $52 and up.
