Fireworks and barbecues are all fine ways to celebrate Independence Day, but if you happen to find yourself in Guantánamo Bay, the site of the infamous prison, feel free to add a Ludacris performance to your scheduled activities.

On the 4th of July, Luda will be performing as part of the Freedom Festival at Guantánamo’s Windward Ferry Landing. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that the prisoners currently being held at Guantánamo are going to get themselves a free rap show: According to The Miami Herald, the venue is “far enough away so the music won’t reach the seafront prison camps.”

Ludacris will definitely be the most impressive artist to ever play the event: Magic! performed last year, and previous acts have included Jimmy Eat World and Plain White T’s. Ludacris goes on at 10 p.m., after the Family Fun Zone and a fireworks display.
