The line-up for Juicy Fest 2024, the largest hip hop and RnB nostalgia music festival in the Southern Hemisphere has been released today.
The event, which attracted over 100,000 attendees in its debut season in January, will be staged across 9 locations in Australia and New Zealand in January 2024.
Well known for his popularisation of autotune in the 2000s, T-Pain is a trailblazer and RnB icon. Grammy-winning, songwriter and producer with a multitude of number one hits, T-Pain will be in Australia for the first time in over 10 years.
Undeniably one of the biggest Southern American artists of all time, with a list of accolades that boast not only music but acting, producing, TV shows and more – T.I is a certified legend and we expect Australian fans to erupt with excitement at this news.
Grammy winning singer-songwriter Ashanti has penned a number of hits, but her song Foolish is a worldwide number one smash. Already wooing crowds here in 2022, Ashanti is ready to return to one of her favourite fan bases and do it all over again.
Compton rapper The Game emerged in the early 2000s as the next generation super-star rapper from the West Coast scene, combining intense autobiographical narratives, a hunger to assert his lyrical prowess, and a creatively referential approach to hip hop. Game’s extensive music portfolio consists of ‘The Documentary’, a full-length debut that topped the Billboard 200, ‘Doctor’s Advocate’ in 2006, and ‘The RED Album’ in 2011 which both also achieved Billboard No.1 status. The Game promises this set at Juicy Fest will be one to call home about, celebrating his return to Australia after a long hiatus.
The rest of the lineup features 90s and 2000s legends Trey Songz, Fabulous, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Keri Hilson, Mario and one more big name to be announced soon. With combined streaming of over 100m monthly streams on Spotify alone, this 2024 edition of Juicy Fest is looming as being huge.
“Next year’s event will be bigger and better than this year’s debut which showcased global mainstream stars Nelly and Ja-Rule, as well as legendary singer, songwriter and producer Ne-yo,” said Matthew Spratt festival spokesman. “The 2024 event will build upon the success of our inaugural year to become one of the leading music festivals on the Australian and New Zealand calendar.”
Juicy Fest 2024 will kick off in Ōtautahi Christchurch on January 3 before heading to Te Whanganui-A-Tara Wellington, Tauranga and Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland and then moving to Australia to play Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.
