Live Nation Urban has revealed the details for the fifth annual Summer Block Party Festival — the preeminent destination for soul and R&B devotees since 2015. Tickets will be available on Friday April 5th at 10 am local time.
Not only does the festival return to Philadelphia, Houston, and Chicago, but Live Nation Urban also schedules its very first Dallas engagement. This expansion remains a testament to the growing popularity of Summer Block Party Festival. In 2019, the stage will once more play host to genre legends as well as today’s hottest breaking talent, upholding a five-year tradition and commitment to excellence in soul and R&B.
For the 2019 series, GRAMMY Award-winning modern icon Jill Scott headlines all four dates. Meanwhile, GRAMMY Award-nominated soul songstress and hometown hero Jazmine Sullivan joins the bill as direct support on the Philadelphia concert at Mann Center for Performing Arts on June 29th. Soul icon Faith Evans and Tweet round out the lineup for the Dallas engagement July 5th at Toyota Music Factory. A day later, Boyz II Men and rising star Lucky Daye grace the stage in Houston at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. For the fifth year, the festival resumes at its original Chicago site on Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island on July 13th with Anthony Hamilton, MA$E, and Carl Thomas.
