Filling in for Tone Loc is hip hop pioneer ROB BASE, who will appear as part of the Old Skool All Stars with the previously announced SUGAR HILL GANG and NAUGHTY BY NATURE. The triple-billed concert will be the featured performance on Saturday evening, June 6th at 7:30 p.m.
Best known for his 1998 platinum hip-hop classic “It Takes Two,” Rob Base along with childhood friend DJ E-Z Rock rode their smash hit onto R&B radio stations as well as dance clubs around the world and provided a touchstone for the style known as hip-house.
“It Takes Two” became a street sensation upon its release in 1988. Massive club airplay enhanced its impact considerably and the song was named Single of the Year by both the Village Voice and Spin Magazine.
All Celebrate Fairfax! Festival tickets include admission and concerts on five stages. More than 60 performers, 250 exhibits and attractions, and 75,000 visitors are expected for the three-day, award winning Celebrate Fairfax! Festival. The event is produced by the 501(c)3 non-profit Celebrate Fairfax, Inc.
