H.E.R. is ready to prove to the world that R&B is thriving.
Monday, the Grammy-winning vocalist announced that she’s spearheading a new festival called Lights On. In partnership with Live Nation Urban, H.E.R. is set to curate and headline the inaugural concert at Concord Pavilion in Concord, CA on September 14.
The upcoming festival champions R&B music, with a lineup featuring a handful of the genre’s current and emerging talents. The likes of Jhené Aiko, Daniel Caesar, Summer Walker, and Ari Lennox have been tapped as headliners, with additional performances from Kiana Ledé, DaniLeigh, Melii, Lucky Daye, Marc E. Bassy and more.
H.E.R.’s vision for the festival includes providing a platform for and showcasing art forms other than music. Lights On will be comprised of two main stages for music, and a third stage dedicated to rising filmmakers.
