The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Childish Gambino is the alter ego of multi-hyphenate American entertainer Donald Glover, who is also known for his acting roles on television shows like Community and the Emmy- and the Golden Globe-winning Atlanta, as well as the film Solo: A Star Wars Story. As Childish Gambino, Glover refined his off-kilter brand of hip-hop on his 2013 breakthrough album Because the Internet before making a sharp turn toward R&B-inspired funk, which won him a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance in 2017 for the single "Redbone." In 2018, his politically charged song "This Is America" debuted at number one atop the Billboard Hot 100, buoyed by a viral music video that addressed gun violence and racial injustice. The success of those two projects launched him into a creative burst, which led to the release of his genre-defying, mind-bending 3.15.20 album in 2020 (which was reissued in slightly altered form as Atavista in 2024).
