2016 Summer Jam Festival Stage Lineup Features Chance The Rapper, Tory Lanez, Desiigner & More
Summer Jam, Hot 97's premier concert showcase, will be taking place at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, June 5, with the New York City hip-hop radio staple releasing information about the event's Festival Stage today (April 5). While the main stage at Summer Jam typically features the biggest names in rap and R&B, the Festival Stage is a precursor of sorts, an opportunity for burgeoning or more regional acts to play for the crowd beforehand.
Announced earlier today on Ebro in the Morning with Laura Stylez & Rosenberg, the Summer Jam Festival Stage will include sets by Chance the Rapper, Tory Lanez, Curren$y, Desiigner, Post Malone, Dave East, Justine Skye, Dougie F and Rotimi. Last year's Festival Stage featured B.o.B, Travis Scott, Dej Loaf, Joey Bada$$ and Teyana Taylor, while the Stadium Stage had headliners like Kendrick Lamar, Chris Brown and Trey Songz. There was a total of 32 surprise guests between both stages last year, with more than 50,000 people in attendance.
Exclusive pre-sale tickets for Summer Jam 2016 will go on sale at 12 p.m. EST today at ticketmaster.com. Tickets will also be available at the MetLife Stadium Box Office beginning Monday, April 11 at 11 a.m., but will not be sold at the stadium the day of the event.

The station plans to announce the official Stadium Stage line-up this Friday (April 8) at 9 a.m. The Festival Stage will kick off Summer Jam 2016 at 3 p.m. on June 5.
