The Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore’s monthly summer festival series will be back this weekend with its “biggest lineup” yet and will celebrate “the five pillars of hip-hop,” organizers said.

The next “Baltimore by Baltimore” festival will be held on Saturday, Sept. 3, from noon to 8 p.m. at the Inner Harbor Amphitheater.

The event, which is being produced by Media Rhythm Institute, will feature performances by Mumu Fresh, Mightly Mark, Lil Key, Deetranada, Zadia, and more.

“Baltimore offers an eclectic mix of artists and art practices. Baltimore by Baltimore provides you with a snippet of this talent ranging from visual, musical, and performance artists. This is how we, along with Waterfront Partnership and Baltimore City Public Schools are creating industry,” Media Rhythm Institute officials said in a statement.

In addition to music, the festival will also feature a “Resource Row,” with “back-to-school goodies,” resources for health and wellness and job readiness, silent yoga demonstrations, and a game truck.

Local makers will also show and sell their work, including clothing, skin care products, artwork and more.
