One of Austin, Texas’ biggest hip-hop music festivals is coming up and people are hyped. The lineup dropped on Monday, February 25, announcing headliner Travis Scott with Lil Wayne, Kevin Gates, Gunna, Sheck Wes and Youngboy Never Broke Again. Other artists that will be appearing are Bad Bhabie, Blueface, City Girls, Maxo Kream, P-Lo, 10K.Caash and Whookilledkenny. With these headliners, the public is very excited for what is to come.

Quaysean Cropper,12, is going to attend this year. “It’s my first time going and it’ll be a good experience because my boy Gunna will be there.”

Fans will find that tickets are priced much higher than last year with pre-sale tickets priced up to $99. Many people were shocked last Friday when the presale tickets dropped; the public was expecting tickets to be less than $50, based on previous years. Most people aren’t very satisfied with how this years festival is going so far.

Mckamey Elliott, 11, said,”I don’t really like the lineup, plus the prices are expensive.”

JMBLYA happens Saturday, May 4 at the Circuit of the Americas. All tickets (VIP and General Admission) will be released to the general public on Friday, March 1.
