XXL & Sickamore Present The Famous Factory Show Tomorrow [With Video]
The Famous Factory and Sickamore in association with XXL magazine are proud to present the latest installment of The Famous Factory Show, a live concert featuring performances by some of the hottest up-and-coming acts including Nipsey Hussle, Donnis, Big K.R.I.T., Outasight, Smoke Dza, Troy Ave and Rich Hil. The special event will be held this tomorrow (June 19) at Brooklyn’s Public Assembly.
This edition of The Famous Factory Show is the second of a monthly series of events across the country for ages 16-and-up, which are designed to showcase rap’s diversity in both sound and regional influences.
Founded by tastemaker Sickamore, and in association with XXL, The Famous Factory Show provides the Internet’s most dedicated fans an opportunity to see the artists to which they’ve given the heaviest online buzz. In addition to assembling those in-demand artists from all across the U.S., The Famous Factory Show is also meant to open doors for younger audiences who often don’t get the chance to see their favorite artists perform inside 21-and-older venues.
“I wanted to create an experience for teenagers to experience the artists they helped build on the blogs,” says Sickamore. “Arcades are gone, as well as skate [rinks]. The Factory is that new place for them to get together.”
Sponsored by OkayPlayer.com, Decon and Coat of Arms, doors for the second edition of The Famous Factory show, will open at 7 p.m., and the show will begin one-hour later. Tickets are available here for $20. —XXL Staff
