Howard Homecoming won’t be the same this year. Primarily because at Yardfest, Friday’s staple event on the campus of Howard University, won’t feature live performances like in years past.
The school announced earlier this month that no live performance will be held on the yard. Instead, some notable deejays will be spinning tunes. Yawn!
Still, students and alumni who came back to the District and wanted to see a show they have a few options. If you didn’t get your hands on tickets to see Fabolous and Dom Kennedy at the D.C. Armory (an official homecoming event) then try MeccaFest at Gateway DC (2700 Martin Luther King Avenue SE, St. Elizabeths East Campus) where Jeremih, Future, Elle Varner, Teyana Taylor, Rae Sremmurd and others are performing.
