21 Savage to headline Juice Jam concert
21 Savage to headline Juice Jam
Hyped and heralded rapper 21 Savage will headline this year’s Juice Jam on Sept. 8 at Skytop Field.
EARTHGANG, FLETCHER, Kilo Kish and Mt. Joy will join 21 Savage for University Union’s school-year-opening music festival on two stages that Sunday. Gates will open at noon.
21 Savage has recently earned a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year in 2019 for his collaboration with Post Malone on “Rockstar.” Known for his distinct style and beats, the Atlanta-based artist makes music that’s as autobiographical as it is gritty. Also among 21 Savage’s notable collaborations is “Monster” with 2012 Juice Jam headliner Childish Gambino.
Also hailing from Atlanta, EARTHGANG will bring its own brand of Southern-style hip-hop. With members Olu and WowGr8 – two young artists who marry lean, sharp-eyed lyricism with Southern-fried soul, every song arrives fully formed, hitting hard and landing jokes while also delving deep into political issues.
Because of her popular songs on YouTube and Spotify, singer-songwriter FLETCHER has been tapped as an Artist to Watch by Billboard.
Mt. Joy started off as a rekindling of high school friends and quickly evolved into a full-fledged five-piece band, releasing folk records and songs that center on honesty and hope. Their music will provide Juice Jam goers with an alternative indie rock set to compliment the other pop artists in the lineup.
Known for her work with such prominent artists such as Gorillaz and Childish Gambino, singer-songwriter and visual artist Kilo Kish will also be taking the stage at Juice Jam. Kilo Kish offers an experimental take on the hip-hop genre that blends with her talents in design, which will most likely add some visual flair to the event.
Tickets for Juice Jam are $20 cash only with SU/SUNY ESF ID.
The Dome box office is closed due to renovations so tickets will be sold every day from Wednesday, August 28 through Sunday, Sept. 8 except Monday for Labor Day on the SU Quad from 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
