It’s The Bronx just keeps getting better and better.

The massive festival has just announced another new comment while anticipating its touch down at Union Crossing at 825 E. 141 Street from Saturday, March 23 to Sunday, March 24.

Amid the impressive lineup of programming highlighting all things boogie down, four Bronxites will now be hosting unique panels at the festival’s main stage.
