DETROIT (AP) — A festival that celebrates southeastern Michigan's musical and ethnic diversity is returning to the Motor City a little earlier.
The 21st annual Concert of Colors kicks off June 29 with its Tune Up Concert. The main event runs from July 4-7.
The festival traditionally is held in mid-July.
Detroit-raised star Don Was plans to return as headliner with his Detroit All-Star Revue. The complete line-up is expected to be announced next week.
The performances are free and open to the public. Venues include the Max M. Fisher Music Center, Detroit Institute of Arts and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.
The Official After Party will be held July 6 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. MOCAD is a new partner for the event.
