The 2022 lineup for Day N Vegas has been announced.
Travis Scott, J. Cole, and SZA will headline the event, which takes place from Sept. 2-4 at Las Vegas Festival Grounds. Other performers include Pusha-T, Playboi Carti, 21 Savage, Jorja Smith, Don Toliver, Joji, Vince Staples, Baby Keem, Syd, T-Pain, City Girls, Trippie Redd, Summer Walker, Smino, UMI, Sabrina Claudio, Steve Lacy, Freddie Gibbs, Jhene Aiko, Earthgang, BIA, Saba, and more. You can check out the full lineup below.
Last year’s festival saw headliners in Kendrick Lamar and Tyler, the Creator, while SZA, Saweetie, Doja Cat, Lil Baby, Polo G, Ari Lennox, Thundercat, Kenny Beats, and Baby Keem also hit the stage. That show marked K-Dot’s return to the stage after the Damn era, as well as one of the first events Scott pulled out of following the tragedy at his Astroworld Festival.
At the end of his fest performance in 2021, K-Dot told fans he’d be back “very soon.” Since then, we’ve gotten his impressive album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. Time will tell what artists may announce for their fans at this year’s event.
While Scott himself made his return to television in the form of a Billboard Music Awards performance last month, this festival booking will mark his first major fest following the events of Astroworld—when the November 2021 crowd-crush incident took the lives of 10 fans and injured hundreds more. Scott also recently hit the stage at Miami’s E11EVEN night club for a 45-minute set, and has appeared at private affairs as well since the tragedy.
“There will be no canceling on my watch,” Diddy said ahead of Scott’s BBMAs appearance. “Love is about forgiveness…so that was why it was important for me to have Travis Scott perform. It’s going to be a great night.”
Presale for Day N Vegas tickets starts Friday at 10 a.m. PT.
