The CLT hip-hop and black music scene has benefited from the launch of multiple new festivals over the past two years, including New Era Music Fest, Bla-Alt Festival, The Black Mecca and Bush Fest. For this week's special episode, we brought in organizers behind two of those festivals that are yet to come — artist Dammit Wesley with The Black Mecca and rapper Seph Dot with Bush Fest.

We talk to the two about what it takes to put on a successful festival, what fans can expect at their respective events and the question on everyone's mind: Who are the Bushes?
