Common's locally-focused hip-hop showcase returns to Union Park after skipping the crowded festival season last summer. Tink and Taylor Bennett will headline the Community Showcase on Saturday, which allows local talent to audition for a spot on stage the following day. On Sunday, it's the Main Stage event, which will be hosted by comedian Deon Cole and feature sets from Common, Bilal, the Roots, Jeremih, The Internet, Sir the Baptist and more (yet-to-be-announced) acts.
