This Saturday, after Street Fair, Antioch College will host Music on Main, a concert organized by a student group called the Antioch Creative Collective, or ACC. The event begins at 5 p.m. and is being held on the lawn in front of Antioch’s main building, One Morgan Place.

The concert, which is open to all ages, will be headlined by world-famous rapper Talib Kweli and will also feature local artists Village Fam with Lauren Nicole and Garden Goddess, Speaking Suns, Lori and DJ Creepingbear.

Tickets start at $20 for general admission but Antioch students and faculty will be allowed to enter for free — $15 tickets are available for all other students. In addition to music, the event will host food trucks, art vendors, and beer sales, which will be operated by Bonbright, a Dayton-based distributor.

“Our goal was to create the biggest music fest since the reopening of the college,” said Marcell Vanarsdale, an Antioch College student and co-founder of the ACC, in a recent interview. He also stressed the importance of opening Antioch’s doors to new people and creating a culture that fights against divisiveness.

Talib Kweli is a Brooklyn-based MC who is known internationally for his work as a solo artist as well as for his many collaborations with artists like Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Mos Def, who was his partner in the hip-hop duo Black Star.
