In 1996, Smokin’ Grooves, the first large-scale hip-hop festival, traveled across the country to more than 30 cities. Bringing hip-hop to a large number of fans. The original festival lasted only three years, with a brief return in 2002 for a shorter version of the festival. It was resurrected at the Queen Mary in Long Beach in 2018 and2019, before moving to the State Historic Park. But, if you missed Lovers & Friends, this is your second chance to enjoy those timeless R&B and hip hop vibes that always seem to elicit the best kind of nostalgia.
