B.e. Easy Music and Arts Festival, a music and arts festival, will be held to celebrate the life of Ben Evans, a South Floridian who died last year at age 23.
The event will feature art by Stefanie Holtzheuser, Allen and Lisa Glover, Lauraly Atria, Ernest Lee and Phd, and music by Crazy Fingers, The Funky Nuggets, Ancient Sun, Gavin Shea, Aquaphonics, Lucky Costello, Soulnar, Brady Newbill and friends, The Psychedlic Zoo, Flint Blade and Yuri Keyes. There will also be a rap showcase featuring Jonny Lyrks, Young Slay, Moe- Kash, Ace and Rip Words Worth.
Additionally, counselors will be available at the event for anyone who wants to talk. "There are so many young people either caught in the struggle of addiction or know someone that is struggling," note the family members behind the event. "Many of them do not know where to turn for help or cannot afford treatment. We want to make this an annual event and our hope is that by promoting an open dialogue we can help someone who is struggling and wants help,"
The event, which will include beer and food trucks, will serve up $2 grilled cheeses. It's all happening from noon to midnight July 28 at The Bubble, 810 N.E. Fourth Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $15 through Brown Paper Tickets, or $20 at the door.
