Hip Hop acts Atmosphere and Lupe Fiasco, actor/ musician Mos Def and British rocker Billy Bragg are joining the line-up at the Service Employees International Union’s (SEIU) Take Back Labor Day Festival at the foot of the Republican National Convention.
On Sept. 1 from noon to 7 p.m. at Harriet Island Regional Park in St. Paul, Minn., the musicians will share the stage with already-announced performing artists Steve Earle, Allison Moorer, and Tom Morello & friends. The Take Back Labor Day Festival, sponsored by SEIU, will include a concert, a You Tube station, a children’s area, and a large audience-participation art project.
