As the West Coast's first weekend of Coachella fades into glittered oblivion, the East Coast's annual major music concert, Hot 97's Summer Jam, has just announced its 2018 line-up.
Celebrating 25 years, the event—nicknamed "'94 Til' Infinity"—boasts Kendrick Lamar (who just became the first rapper to win a Pulitzer Prize) as its headliner, while Lil Wayne is set to perform "Carter Classics." The Stadium Stage will also see A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez, Remy Ma, Swizz Beatz, A Boogie, Rich the Kid and more, while the Festival Stage will welcome Famous Dex, Don Q and others.
Ebro Darden, HOT 97's Assistant Program Director, said, "Our team got together and felt the theme, '94 til Infinity,' captured where Summer Jam is today launching into the 25th year. We wanna make sure the culture knows we plan to keep it cracking for the Tri-State & hip-hop. Summer Jam has established itself as a mainstay in an artist's evolution since the beginning, and we will keep working with artists and fans to keep the same energy."
Summer Jam 2018 is June 10 at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
