About the Artists

AFROHEAT! is a dance party celebration of Afrobeat music from the past, present, & future. DJ Vex and DJ SMI started a humble little party dedicated to the music of the Motherland. They set out to celebrate Afrobeat music specifically but also other sounds and styles from the diaspora.

About Inside Out

Inside Out is Carnegie Museum of Art's free outdoor summer event series. Inside Out takes place from Saturday, June 4 through Saturday, August 13 in the museum’s Sculpture Court in an immersive pavilion by artist Rafael Domenech, commissioned for the 58th Carnegie International.

Curated by Lauren Goshinski and huny young, this year's lineup of Thursday evening DJ performances highlights a wide range of crews and collectives who are active across Pittsburgh’s nightlife scenes. The 2022 Inside Out series is centered around the concept of “+1.” Each crew has been invited to add a special guest artist to help expand the music and connections for artists and audiences alike.
