Chance The Rapper, A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, and DJ Khaled will headline Hot 97's Summer Jam. The festival is set to take place June 5th and New Jersey's Metlife Stadium. Presale tickets are currently available for purchase.
Last week, Hot 97 unveiled Summer Jam's Festival Stage lineup, which includes Chance The Rapper, Tory Lanez, Curren$y, Desiigner, and more. On Friday, the station shared the Stadium Stage lineup, which is comprised of Big Sean, Pusha T & G.O.O.D. Music, DJ Khaled & Friends, A$AP Rocky & A$AP Ferg, Bryson Tiller, Young Thug, Tinashe, and Kid Ink. More announcements are set to come May 5th.
Last year's event was marred by a parking lot riot, which saw all the gates of the venue closed and police in riot gear. Multiple arrests were made as concertgoers and New York State Police had a standoff, due to attendees without tickets climbing over fences into the venue. Upon the closing of all gates, rioters refused to disperse and threw glass bottles at police officers. The police responded with riot gear, armored vehicles, and pepper spray, and multiple arrests were made.
Summer Jam has been held in East Rutherford, New Jersey since 1994, with Wu-Tang Clan, Gang Starr, and A Tribe Called Quest all playing the first concert. 2015's lineup featured Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, and Chris Brown. 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa, and Schoolboy Q all made guest appearances.
