Lights on Festival was an entire vibe.
Festival Date – 9/14/2019
I had the absolute best time at H.E.R’s first EVER 100% Female Owned festival held at Concord Pavillion. This festival included the tagline “R&B is not dead” because it ISN’T. I think given the number of artists popping up, forming new genres and styles, some of our most beloved music hasn’t been given the time and recognition it deserves. H.E.R. wanted to bring a family-friendly curated showcase to provide a platform to some of the most hot upcoming R&B artists coming up this year.
I have already been listening to several of these artists, but being able to see them all under one bill was something NOBODY expected, but I’m so happy that H.E.R. brought this iconic festival back home to the Bay Area and is the first festival of its kind.
- Jhene Aiko
- Daniel Caesar
- Summer Walker
- Ari Lennox
- Kiana Lede (I legit cried seeing her live)
- Lucky Daye
- Marc E. Bassy
- Lonr ( I LOVE HIS MUSIC)
- Tonestith aka the voice of an angel
- Black Party (I met him! See the above picture.)
- Rayana Jay
- Destiny Ryan
Do you see the lineup? Honestly, this event was much needed and I can’t wait to see how H.E.R. expands this event in the future. I’ve heard rumors about a two-day festival (according to Live Nation) and I would definitely attend.
If you’re interested in going next year, pay close attention to Lights on Festival social pages and website! If you love R&B, you won’t be disappointed.
