Here is what the promoters themselves have to say:

“With Jambalaya the idea is for the fans to expect something that they’ve never experienced before.  Our music collections today are not comprised of one genre, they’re a myriad.  Jambalaya isn’t about huge field with multiple stages, although big festivals are great.  This event is about bringing different “stages” of talent and putting them on back to back.  It’s about providing a festival experience in an intimate setting.  3 years ago we booked an event that featured Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Steve Aoki, Big Sean, Bun B, ScHoolBoy Q, Chiddy Bang, and had special guest sets by Skrillex and Wiz Khalifa.  We were early in projecting the careers on that lineup and, as we all know, this lineup would now be capable of selling out arenas.  That’s what we’re here to do with Jambalaya. This is a 6 hour event with the best mixture of hip-hop and dance music we could assemble.”

This year’s event will take place May 2nd in Dallas (Main Street Gardens) and May 3rd in New Braunfels (Whitewater Amphitheater), don’t miss out!  Score tickets here while they last, and check out our review of last year’s festival with Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Zeds Dead, Big Boi, RL Grime, and G-Eazy here.
