The International Soul Society Festival is an all ages, week-long series of events celebrating the full spectrum of Hip-Hop, Urban Arts and its many influences. On June 12-19th, 2016, we held the 8th annual International Soul Society Festival in the Washington, DC and greater metropolitan area and we thank you all for making it the grand success it was!  Looking forward to seeing you all here in DC for this year’s festival!
