Live Nation Urban announces the fourth annual Summer Block Party Festival– the preeminent destination for soul and R&B devotees since 2015. Tickets go on-sale Friday April 20th at 10am.
After successfully expanding to include Houston in 2017, the original Chicago site will now host a second night for the very first time. Celebrating another first, Summer Block Party Festival now arrives in Philadelphia this summer. Once again, the lineup showcases some of the most important, impactful, and inimitable voices in soul, R&B, and hip-hop.
GRAMMY Award-winning modern icon Jill Scott returns home to Philly in order to headline the first night June 30 at The Mann Music Center. Miguel Fantasia top a dynamic bill at Cynthia Woods Pavilion in Houston July 7. Keith Sweat headlines the Chicago show at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island July 14 followed by Babyface and Boyz II Men the next evening July 15.
The full itinerary and each respective lineup can be found enclosed below.
Summer Block Party set the industry standard for R&B and soul-centric festivals. Launched in Chicago during 2015, it has gone on to consistently sell out every year and spotlight not only genre luminaries, but the next generation’s hottest young R&B stars. Previous lineups boasted everyone from Erykah Badu and Jazmine Sullivan to Ledisi and SWV, to name a few.
It also continues a blockbuster 2018 for the team at Live Nation Urban. The year’s stacked slate includes not only Summer Block Party shows, but Rap Caviar Live, Broccoli City Festival, Roots Picnic, A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop, and Kirk Franklin’s Exodus Music & Arts Festival. LNU has positioned itself at the forefront of the culture, ushering it forward with each subsequent show.
“We feel blessed to be able to continue to build and grow this Summer Block Party platform, it’s important to give R&B artists and fans a place to engage in a live setting. I’m looking forward to the shows this year and adding even more cities to the series next year”, says Shawn Gee, President of Live Nation Urban.
