After a 16 year hiatus, the one day festival will recommence at the Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach on Saturday, June 16. The tour will return to 13 to 15 markets in 2019 with a multi-act bill that will thrive in a lane of its own.” Other 2018 Smokin‘ Grooves artists include Busta Rhymes, Majid Jordan, dvsn, Alina Baraz, Thundercat, Yasiian Bey f.k.a. Mos Def, Soulection, Madlib and more, aboard the retired ocean liner Queen Mary (where another Goldenvoice fest, The Smokers Club Fest, will take place later this month).
