The Blue Note Jazz Festival & Jill Newman Productions are very disappointed to announce, that due to scheduling conflicts beyond his control, Yasiin Bey will not be able to perform his June 24 SummerStage concert. 

There will not be a replacement act. The venue will be closed on June 24th.

One of the most versatile artists of his time, Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def) has become an international sensation in theater, film, television, and the music industry.  Bey began his professional music career as Mos Def in 1994.  Since that time, he has worked both as a solo artist and in collaboration with artists such as Talib Kweli, Kanye West, The Roots, The Black Keys, and many others.  He has received six GRAMMY nominations, including Best Rap Album in 2010 for his newest release, The Ecstatic, which debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200 chart.  Also, in 2012 The Source ranked Bey as number 23 on their list of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time.
