Lunch Break Live! With Chreece Preview Presented By Lake City Bank

Aug 14

Join us at SPARK for a preview show of Indianapolis’s own hip-hop festival, Chreece!

About Chreece:

Chreece is powered by local talent. While the event has drawn notable national names to town, people here in Indy have ultimately been the driving force. “The inclusion of the locals is central to the success of the festival,” says Ron “Indiana Jones” Miner, a local DJ legend who now serves as director of business development for Chreece. “It’s a team effort. They [as artists] buy in, we buy in as promoters, the city buys in, and we all do something good.” At this year’s fest, on August 24, local acts include Clint Breeze and the Groove, Drayco McCoy, FLACO, Mathaius Young, Parris LaDame, Trajik, and more.

They’ve snagged their biggest headliner yet. After attracting Chicago acts like Mick Jenkins and Valee to star in previous years, Chreece welcomes New York–based rapper Talib Kweli to Indianapolis in 2019. With a solo catalog dating back to the early 2000s, Kweli is also widely celebrated for his collaborations with Mos Def as half of the legendary hip-hop duo Black Star. Kweli most recently released a solo album in 2017 titled Radio Silence, featuring guest contributions from Anderson .Paak, Rick Ross, and more.

We at Big Car are teaming up with Downtown Indy and the City of Indianapolis — with support from the Capital Improvement Board and the Indiana War Memorials Commission— to spark Monument Circle with human-scale activities like games, live music, artmaking, and socializing in a comfortable place.
