Probability the Rapper is headlining Rap Caviar Stay in Brooklyn
Spotify is once again transforming its influential rap caviar playlist into a live event.
One of Spotify’s top performing playlists is constantly evolving into a very powerful tour.
Gucci Mane first launched Rap Caviar Live last year, though it was only the first of many illustrious headliners. Now Spotify has announced that Chance the Rapper will host this year’s event in Brooklyn on March 29th.
The show takes place in the Ford Amphitheater on the Coney Island Boardwalk. Other artists alongside Chance the Rapper this year include Tierra Whack, DJ SpinKing and Sheck Wes.
Spotify is also using the rap caviar event to promote rising stars in the hip hop community. Rap Caviar is by far one of Spotify’s biggest playlists, with more than 10 million followers, so the impact on the wider scene is immense. That means any rapper who lands on a rap caviar stage or playlist is going to enjoy a serious boost.
Live Nation Urban is also helping with the production of the show.
The Brooklyn event is sponsored in part by Verizon. The mobile giant has partnered with Spotify to host a dedicated VIP area for members of its Verizon Up loyalty program. Members of this program wishing to redeem VIP tickets for the event can do so through the My Verizon app.
Presale tickets for the show are now available through Spotify’s Fans First initiative. General ticket sales for the event will be available on Friday (August 17) at 10 a.m. EST via Ticketmaster.com.
Spotify’s Fans First Initiative has also promoted another Spotify playlist called “Mint,” which sold Mint branded items such as t-shirts and fanny packs to raise funds for mental health awareness.
Spotify’s star-studded line-up for Rap Caviar Live 2017 previously included artists like Migos, Cardi B, Trippie Redd, Lil Uzi Vert, Dipset, A $ AP Mob, Lil ‘Pump, Playboi Carti and more. Previous caviar gigs have taken place in Toronto, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Houston and New York City.
This is the second year the playlist has launched its own live show.
