Peacefest aims to bring people together through music

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Uniting a community by bringing people together through music and rap -- that's the goal of Peacefest 2016.

On Friday, local artists and community activists announced the event will take place in one of Louisville's hotbeds of crime: Sheppard Park. The event will feature singers, rappers, and speakers, all aimed at trying to use music to bring about understanding.

"We see death, as soon as we open our eyes," said LaFon Brown one of the Peacefest organizers. "Let's change that. On July 30th, put the guns down, man. Come out, celebrate, hang out, kick it -- enjoy one another.

Peacefest is July 30 at Sheppard Park.
