DPAC and the 2017 Art of Cool (AOC) Festival announce the addition of Golden Globe, Academy and 2-Time Grammy® award-winning rapper/actor/film producer/poet Common as part of the official lineup for the 2017 AOC Festival taking place in Durham, North Carolina on April 28-30. Common with special guests Rapsody and Heather Victoria will perform at DPAC on Saturday, April 29, 2017.
With his multi-Grammy® Award winning music career, his continued accolades in film winning a 2015 Academy Award, 2015 Golden Globe Award, 2015 NAACP Award, 2015 Independent Spirit Award and 2015 Critic’s Choice Award, Common has emerged as one of Hollywood's most sought after leading men.
Prior to acting, Common rose to prominence as one of hip hop’s most poetic and respected lyricists. He has recorded 10 studio albums and garnered multiple Grammy® Awards.
Whether inspiring audiences through music, movies, television, books or his foundation- The Common Ground Foundation, Common continues to break new ground, and remains one of hip-hop’s most innovative, positive voices.
*An official ticket is required to attend the Common show at DPAC.
Rapsody is a GRAMMY nominated North Carolina emcee signed with super producer, 9th Wonder for Jamla Records. With several projects, a critically acclaimed debut album in 2012, and the lone guest rap feature on Kendrick Lamar’s "To Pimp A Butterfly", she is quickly establishing herself as one of the best emcees of this generation.

Currently, this event has not approved using our video screens. Please feel free to check back closer to the event for updates. If approved, we will post notice here.
For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
