RapCaviar Brand to Expand with Local Curators Across the Globe
In 2017, Spotify brought some of today’s groundbreaking hip hop artists to their biggest fans through their sold out concert series “RapCaviar Live.” To continue the musical momentum in 2018, Spotify’s premier hip hop show returns with 13 shows across the U.S. The four upcoming performances will take place in Los Angeles, Charlotte, Memphis, and Philadelphia, with more dates to be added in the coming weeks.
The new tour dates kick off Tuesday, March 27th in Los Angeles where artists 2 Chainz, Tory Lanez, DJ Mustard & Friends, Lil Pump, Rich the Kid and Jae Murphy will take the stage at the Hollywood Palladium.
Superstar hip hop trio, Migos will headline the additional “RapCaviar Live” shows in Charlotte, NC, Southaven, MS, and Philadelphia, PA performances, along with Trippie Redd. PnB Rock will join for the show in PA.
Produced in partnership with Live Nation Urban, “RapCaviar Live” is inspired by Spotify’s highly influential flagship hip hop playlist, RapCaviar, which gives listeners an authentic take on what’s hot in hip hop and has since become one of Spotify’s biggest playlists with over eight million followers.
The “RapCaviar Live” concert series launched in August 2017 with a show in Atlanta headlined by Gucci Mane, and has since visited Toronto, Chicago, New York, and Houston. For their Houston concert, Spotify and Live Nation Urban dedicated a week of charitable activities leading up to the concert to benefit local communities affected by Hurricane Harvey. Previous guests who have performed on the tour include Gucci Mane, Lil Uzi Vert, Cardi B, A$AP Mob, Dipset, Playboi Carti, Mike WiLL Made-It, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Trae tha Truth, and more.
Beginning Thursday, March 1, pre-sale tickets will be available to Spotify Superfans (Thursday, March 1, 11:00am ET), and through both Citi Cardmembers and LiveNation.com (Thursday, March 1, 11:00am ET). General on-sale tickets will be available through Ticketmaster.com on Friday, March 2, 10:00am ET.
Hip Hop culture is a truly global phenomenon and as Spotify has evolved it has played an increasingly vital role in growing the culture to unprecedented new heights. With the success of RapCaviar within the US, Spotify plans to expand the RapCaviar brand globally with local curators on the ground in an effort to highlight the power of different genres within the hip hop landscape.
