Lovers & Friends was one of the most anticipated festivals of 2020, that was until the idea was ruined by the coronavirus pandemic and postponed indefinitely. Snoop Dogg, Live Nation and Bobby Dee announced the nostalgia-packed festival’s revival with a revamped lineup on Thursday (July 29).
Lovers & Friends is set to return on May 14, 2022, with a new and much larger venue in Las Vegas rather than the original Carson, California location. Pre-sale tickets go on sale on Monday (August 2) at 1 p.m. ET on the festival’s website with a minimum down payment of $19.99.
The bedazzled lineup is powered by a heavy dose of Hip Hop combined with 2000s R&B. Performers taking the stage next May include Usher, Lauryn Hill, Ludacris, Lil Kim, Ashanti, Ja Rule, T-Pain, Fabolous, Nelly, Trey Songz, Juvenile, Ciara, Cam’ron, Lil Jon, Ne-Yo, TLC and many more.
General admission tickets are going for $175 while VIP cabanas can cost groups up to $10,000. There are travel packages also available for those flying into the area.
Lil Kim originally called foul on the festival before changing her tune and agreeing she was actually part of the lineup in 2020.
Rolling Loud made its return over the weekend with other festivals returning later this year such as Made In America, Day N Vegas, Once Upon A Time In L.A. and more.
