Feed your soul: Cathartic soul singer Charles Bradley, 67, and his band, The Extraordinaires, will headline the Main Stage at 12th and Grove streets at 8:30 p.m. The former James Brown impersonator has won over fans and critics since he released his debut album in 2011.

Feel the thunder: Bass virtuoso Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner will shake the walls of El Korah Shrine, 1118 W. Idaho St., at 11:15 p.m. His resume includes a Grammy for collaborating on Kendrick Lamar’s “These Walls.”

Get your mantra on: Yogafort co-founder Marisa Weppner will rock her Yin-Licious yoga to music performed by Masood Ali Khan and sacred singer Sheela Bringi at 11:45 a.m. at The Rose Room, 718 W. Idaho St.

Street art: Sector Seventeen — Solomon Hawk Sahlein and Collin Pfeifer — will perform spray paint magic near the main stage area. Keep your eyes open for pop-up performances throughout the festival.
