1. Big Boy’s Neighborhood
Real 92.3 Real Street brought Big Boy’s Neighborhood to real life, as they chatted and interviewed artists just like they do on their morning radio show. Inside of the air-conditioned portion of the Honda Center, the neighborhood included classic old school cars, a barbershop, a tattoo shop, a hair shop, a nail shop, and an arcade. It was quite an experience.
Big Boy’s Neighborhood featured interviews with artist such as Trippie Redd, Blueface, Miguel, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Saweetie and more!
The neighborhood hosted an eccentric display of elite classic cars from West Coast Customs.
From walking around and sweating all-day fans could relax and pamper themselves in Big Boy’s Neighborhood. Attendees could get a fade from the barbershop presented by Cantu which used barbers from Brotherhood Barbershop. Additionally, you could grab from an array of products from the Cantu men’s collection line.
Broke a nail? They could fix that. Hair was looking a little crusty? They could fix that. Throughout the two-day festival, anytime warranted you could head over to the nail salon and hair salon presented by Rich Girl Candy and get yourself back festival ready!
Another cool feature to the neighborhood was the tattoo parlor featuring the crews of celebrity tattoo artists Mz Ink Bomb and Carlos Macias. Granted you had to have an appointment, the wait was all worth it as most of the pieces came out amazing.
