5. Step On It: Rock the Bells
You may have to travel to New Jersey for this annual two-day hip-hop festival, but that's only because New York can't contain all the talent on this year's stellar lineup.
Hella holograms: Diss-dropping Kendrick Lamar joins A$AP Mob, KRS-One, Earl Sweatshirt, and Kid Cudi. But wait for it, because then the Wu-Tang Clan flows with a vitual ODB and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony balls out with a virtual Eazy-E.
Our Perfect PF Flyers Pick: The electric green laces and soles of the Beeson chukka-style high-tops will make sure your feet stick out in a crowd of more-of-the-same sneakers, and the lugged outsoles will keep your toes happy as you hike from stage to bar and back again.
Fri-Sat Oct 4-5. Grass Infields at Meadowlands Racetrack, 50 New Jersey 120, East Rutherford.
