THE SOUTH’S MOST IMPORTANT MUSIC EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT
20 YEARS OF THE HIP HOP CULTURE WILL BE CELEBRATED JUNE 19-21, 2015 IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA
[Atlanta, GA February 13, 2015] Over three days, four concert events will celebrate the rich history of the South’s hip hop culture that has impacted the world. In 1995 Radio One, Inc. launched a new and innovative station WHTA “Hot 97.5” playing Hip Hop 24 hours a day. In 1996, at Variety Playhouse, WHTA celebrated their first Birthday Bash with ‘The #1 Bad Boy Takeover’ featuring Craig Mack and the Notorious BIG. This year Hot 107.9 will celebrate its 20th Birthday with the Birthday Bash 20 Weekend with concerts events celebrating the past, the present and future of Hip Hop with a complete weekend of activities and VIP experiences.
Operations Manager Hurricane Dave said, “It’s amazing when a hip-hop station can still be relevant after 20 years. Hot 1079 has been part of some of the biggest artist careers in the history of hip-hop. The Notorious B.I.G., TI, Jeezy, Future, Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West have all graced the Hot 1079 Birthday Bash Stage. Every year it’s not just about their performance but who will bring out the biggest surprise guests of the night. Birthday Bash weekend is a celebration of the past, today’s hottest stars and who is next to blow.”
Friday June 19th kicks the weekend off celebrating the early years of Hip Hop concert at the historic Tabernacle Downtown Atlanta for the “Classic Throwback Concert” hosted by Rickey Smiley.
