Jmblya, the rap and EDM turn up produced by local powerhouse Scoremore Shows is set to return to the Circuit of the Americas on May 5. On Friday, phase one of the lineup was revealed.
Rappers Playboi Carti, Trippie Redd, Ski Mask the Slump God, Cozz, Killy and Jack Harlow will all perform at this year’s festival. Organizers also promise a variety of special guests including Texas rap kingpins Bun B. and Trae tha Truth.
More artists, including headliners, will be added to the lineup soon, and ticket prices will rise.
Fest organizers are taking steps to address the biggest complaints from this year’s event: lack of shade and water and long lines for food and drinks. They’ve partnered with an outside company Event Water Solutions to provide expanded water filling stations at the event. They plan to double the number of food vendors, increasing bar sizes and adding special non-alcoholic bars. They will also create shade structures on the festival grounds.
In addition to the Austin event, Jmblya will also stage the festival in Dallas and Houston.
