New York’s Hot 97 radio station officially announced the line-up for their annual Summer Jam concert on Thursday (May 3), revealing that Rick Ross and Maybach Music, Young Jeezy, and Nicki Minaj will serve as headliners for the anticipated show.
Set to take place on June 3rd at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, the station expects more than 55,000 fans to attend the sold out show.
The star-studded line-up also includes J. Cole, DJ Khaled, Waka Flocka Flame, Trey Songz, Tyga, Maino, Big Sean, and French Montana, as well as surprise guests. Openers will include A$AP Rocky, Pusha T, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Big K.R.I.T., and Fred the Godson, who will perform on the Festival Village stage.
This iconic event has grown into the longest running and largest hip-hop concerts in the world. Since 1994, HOT 97’s Summer Jam has outgrown New York arenas and in 2003 moved to the tri-state area’s largest venue, The MetLife Stadium, to accommodate the tens of thousands of fans.
This year, the show will stream live to over 28 countries on HOT97.com. With a consistent record and reputation of delivering chart-topping acts, HOT 97’s Summer Jam has become a historic staple in the music community. It has featured memorable appearances in the past from Michael Jackson, who joined Jay-Z onstage, as well as Eminem, Kanye West, and the late Notorious B.I.G.
