Scoremore Shows has unveiled the line-up and dates for the first Jambalaya Festival.
Much like the Cajun dish it takes its name from, the event will bring together a mix of hip-hop and electronic music acts together to play in intimate venues.
“The fans can expect something they’ve never experienced before. Our iPods are not comprised of one genre, instead they encompass a myriad of music. This isn’t about throwing an event in a huge field with multiple stages (although big festivals are great), this particular event is about bringing different ‘stages’ of talent while providing a festival experience in an intimate setting; it exists in a space that has yet to be explored,” Scoremore’s founder Sascha Guttfreund said in a statement. “Three years ago we booked an event that featured Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Steve Aoki, Big Sean, Bun B, ScHoolBoy Q, Chiddy Bang, and had special guest sets by Skrillex and Wiz Khalifa. We were early in projecting the careers on that lineup, a lineup that today would be capable of selling out arenas. That’s what we’re here to do with JAMBALAYA. This is an eight hour event with the best mixture of hip-hop and dance music we could assemble. It is curated with love and passion for taste.”
