(Washington, DC) — Uncertainty surrounding the potential federal government shutdown is causing organizers of the National Celebration of Hip-Hop to postpone and move the event. The two-day festival was originally set to open a week from today on the National Mall and West Potomac Park, but those sites could be off-limits if National Park Service employees can’t be there due to a shutdown. Instead, the event is changing to a single day and moving to Saturday October 28th at Nats Park, where it can proceed without the threat of interruption. Changes to the original lineup of performers are likely.
