Young Thug, AVI Entertainment, and AEG Presents have announced a new indoor live event concept, titled Family Business. The boutique curated event will take place on Aug. 31 at The Bomb Factory in Dallas, Texas.
“We’re not about being the multi-stage festival with three stages and everyone and their mother on the lineup,” AVI Entertainment’s Cameron Almasi said, per Pollstar. “There’s enough people in the market and very respected people doing that already. We don’t want to get in that lane. There’s so much opportunity right now with hip-hop, there’s so many things that haven’t been done yet.”
Seven additional artists will be announced on May 29.
“The best shows I went to growing up were indoors and with such a good lineup that no matter what, I wouldn’t leave to get a beer, use the restroom, I didn’t take my eyes off the stage, and that’s where Cameron and I saw eye to eye,” talent buyer and co-founder Sam Alavi shared. “We want to highlight that feeling to the biggest capacity possible without losing that vibe.”
The event will expand to multiple markets in 2020. “[AEG Presents has] given us so many resources to utilize and we have a great plan together and can really grow this beyond just Texas,” Almasi said.
