Launched in Chicago during 2015, the goal, as Live Nation Urban president Shawn Gee noted then, was to establish a network of multi-act “festival-themed” shows for R&B artists and fans to engage with across the country.

“R&B music, along with hip-hop, has been indexing high on the streaming consumption charts for the past few years,” Gee tells Billboard. “However, there are very few live and radio platforms that specifically cater to the genre. A hip-hop, EDM or alt-rock act can do 15 -20 soft ticket festival plays across a summer touring season. Live Nation Urban’s goal is to continue to expand this platform, so we can offer both emerging and superstar R&B artists the ability to showcase themselves in front of a large live audience across multiple key markets.”

Tickets go on sale on April 20 at 10 a.m.
