June 18 @ 9:00 pm - June 19 @ 2:00 am


The Nappy Luv Festival

Celebrate Black Excellence this Juneteenth with live music, live art and the area’s top food trucks at Durham’s newest venue Suite Four. The Nappy Luv Experience is an event series that fuses music, dance, spoken word, fashion, and art into one big party.
What can you expect at Nappy Luv? Something to satisfy each of the senses.
– Sight – live art and graffiti, videos, live body painting
– Touch – live screen printing and other interactive vendors for hands-on action
– Hearing – a gumbo of global African music
– Smell – party al fresco on the patio, upstairs in the loft, or in the warehouse
– Taste – multiple food trucks and food vendors.
Dating back to the late 90s, Nappy Luv began on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. The event showcased local and national talent including 9th Wonder, Amanda Diva, Median, Apple Juice Kid, Pierce Freelon, and many more. The purpose of the event was to offer urban socialites an alternative to the smoke-filled clubs of yesteryear.
