Migos, Gucci Mane, Chance The Rapper and More to Perform at 2017 JMBLYA Festival
The JMBLYA Festival has included some of the biggest names in hip-hop over each of its last four years in business, and the good folks at ScoreMore Shows have made sure that tradition continues in 2017. The organization has just announced the addition of Migos and Gucci Mane to a line-up that already featured Chance The Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, Pell, YFN Lucci, 6LACK and more.
Chano is all set to headline the two-day festival, which will kick off at Dallas' Fair Park on Friday, May 5 before ending at Austin's Circuit of the Americas (COTA) on Sat., May 6. The "No Problem" rapper and the Migos will join a tradition that's included the likes of Taylor Swift, Elton John, Nicki Minaj, Metallica, Usher and The Roots in past shows.
ScoreMore Shows prides itself on curating shows that reach fans of all ages, and their growing ticket sales prove that they've reached their goal. “It’s surreal to think that this festival started inside of venues [Southside Ballroom in Dallas and Austin Music Hall in Austin] and now requires sites with room to grow. In Dallas, we have a great partner in Fair Park who has not only supported our event but has continued to put the fan experience and safety at the forefront of the conversation,” said Sascha Stone Guttfreund, Founder & President of ScoreMore Shows.
“After selling out 10,000 tickets two weeks in advance last year at the Austin American-Statesman near downtown, we had to figure out what site would be the most ideal to host JMBLYA in Austin for the future," he continued. "COTA makes sense for a number of reasons, including allowing us the freedom to expand our footprint as the demand has dictated over time. To me, COTA isn’t solely a venue for us to grow – they are a great ally for us to grow with. They value the importance of producing great events as well as protecting the experience and the safety of the people who choose to attend. Overall, we’re just honored that people want to spend their hard-earned dollars and their own time with us at our events. We’re grateful for the opportunities that hip-hop fans have made possible, and are excited to continue to grow the JMBLYA event together with the people.”
