JMBLYA, the day party turn up hosted by Austin hip-hop and R&B powerhouse, Scoremore is set to return to Dallas on May 5 and Austin on May 6 with jazzy Chicago hip-hop artist, Chance the Rapper headlining. Also, on the bill for this year’s event are electro house producer Steve Aoki, excellent NOLA rapper Pell and DFW breakout Snow tha Product, who dropped some of the best political hip-hop of 2016 with her brutal bars on the “Hamilton Mixtape.”

This isn’t the first go round at Jmblya for Chance, whose excellent album “Coloring Book” was one of 2016’s best. He also headlined the fest in 2014 when the Central Texas showing was in New Braunfels at the Whitewater Amphitheater. Last year, the party moved to Austin and packed a crowd of over 10,000 into Austin American-Statesman parking lot for a sold out show.

On the JMBLYA website, the Austin show is currently slotted to take place at a “top secret location.”

$70 tickets are on sale now.
