On Sept. 9 the IYKYK festival will be bringing a one-day event featuring headliners Lil Uzi Vert, Metro Boomin, Denzel Curry and many more. This inaugural festival is co-produced by Relentless Beats and Universatile Music.
The festival will be taking place at Phoenix Raceway in Avondale. This venue has presented various hit performances such as Martin Garrix, Subtronics, GRiZ, and Zedd. The festival looks to highlight hip-hop culture both on the stage and on the floor to their attendees through fashion, art and vendors across the venue.
With Lil Uzi Vert’s recent production of his third full-length studio album “Pink Tape” and his recent performance at Rolling Loud in Miami, the anticipation for his headlining festival appearance in Arizona is immensely awaited. Metro Boomin has also continued an active presence in hip-hop music from his recent album “Heroes & Villains,” as well as his music production soundtrack in “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” Metro Boomin’s performances are also known for his surprise guests on stage. With the increased curiosity on his set, you will have to be there to find out what surprises are still to be revealed.
Other talent attendees will see include Rico Nasty, who was recently added to the lineup as a surprise guest, as well as rapper, singer and record producer JELEEL!
