Sponsored by the Sanctuary for Independent Media, the inaugural Freedom Festival was held in Troy on Saturday, June 15, serving as a dual celebration of the Juneteenth holiday, as well as the very cool looking, found-art mosaic of the new stage at Freedom Square.

Nippertown’s own Taina Asili y la Banda Rebelde kicked off the music portion of the fest, which was headlined by the NYC-based Afro-Columbian band M.A.K.U. Sound System, who spiked their intoxicating music with elements of jazz, rock, hip-hop, punk and Colombian folkloric rhythms.
