Over six weeks in 1969, the Harlem Cultural Festival took place in Morris Park. Featuring legendary performers from Nina Simone to Stevie Wonder, Sly & the Family Stone, and B.B. King, the festival was broadcast evenings on New York local station WNEW Metromedia Channel 5 — but largely fell out of the pop culture memory. Footage shot of the show sat in a basement and has never been seen — until now. Summer of Soul comes theaters and on Hulu on July 2, 2021
Raw director Julia Ducournau's next film Titane will compete for the Palme d'Or award at the Cannes Film Festival ahead of its July 2021 release date. Starring Agathe Rousselle and Vincent Lindon, the teaser gives nothing away, except for flashes of chrome and neon in a fever nightmare.

In 2008, The Killers released the album Day & Age, and on it was the track "A Dustland Fairytale." After over a decade, the Las Vegas band is re-releasing the song as a duet with Bruce Springsteen. The collaboration came after The Boss reached out to frontman Brandon Flowers via text, and after some disbelief and verification, the rest is history. The new cover shortens the title to just "Dustland" and is available on all music platforms now.
The Foo Fighters reopened Madison Square Garden with its first full-capacity concert since the pandemic shut it down on March 10, 2021. During the show, Dave Grohl called out Dave Chappelle for a cover of Radiohead's "Creep." The comedian belted out the 1992 song to a fully-vaccinated crowd, and despite his lack of range, the crowd ate it up.
