Gotta love Prince.  The legend has put together a last minute arts and music festival in Copenhagen with a stellar line up!  The bad news is, the festival will take place in less than a month, leaving little time for die-hards who do not live in the area to make their way to Denmark.

The festival will take place on August 6 and 7, 2011 and will feature these lineups:

August 6:
Chaka Khan
Larry Graham & Graham Central Station
Raphael Saadiq
Nikka Costa

August 7:
Chaka Khan
Janelle Monae
Nikka Costa
