S.L.U.M. Fest 2012 

2 p.m. Saturday, June 16. Atomic Cowboy, 4140 Manchester Avenue.

The third time will definitely be the charm — not that the first two weren't also. The city's most ambitious hip-hop showcase turns three this year with a return to Atomic Cowboy and a lineup of more than 70 area MCs, DJs, collectives, B-boys and street artists, many of whom have already made the rounds: Packed onto the overstuffed bill of local greats are names like Nato Caliph, Family Affair, Skiddalz and Midwest Avengers. Across twelve hours and four stages, both indoors and out, St. Louis' ever-growing hip-hop community will come together for an evening highlighted by producer, B-boy and MC battles.

Recommended If You Like: Juggling. In years past, the only bad thing about S.L.U.M. Fest was its scheduling, which makes it impossible to catch it all. Plan ambitiously and plan early.
