The Festival Stage has historically hosted up-and-coming artists, including Chance The Rapper, Desiigner, and Tory Lanez.
Although the Stadium Stage lineup won’t be announced until tomorrow (April 25), Hot 97 personality Ebro Darden promised that Summer Jam attendees can expect some surprises.
“It’s all about the music and culture, and Summer Jam is the ultimate event to celebrate and appreciate Hip Hop,” Ebro said in a statement. “Make sure you get your tickets early though; we have a few tricks up our sleeves that you’ll just have to be in the house to know about!”
Twitter did as Twitter does, reacting to the reveal with both excitement and derision.
