Don’t get the winter blues; warm up at Prudential Center on Saturday, December 3rd with performances by Travis Scott, Young Thug, Joey Bada$$, Jidenna, Kehlani and more to be announced. Last year’s event, featuring Busta Rhymes & Friends, was the most talked about concert of the holiday season. Make sure you’re in the house this year for what is set to be another electrifying event! The Hot for the Holidays pre-sale begins this Thursday, October 13th at 10 a.m. ET. Use code “HOT97” to get yours before they go on-sale to the public on Friday, October 14th.

In 2015, Busta Rhymes brought out a whole entourage of friends, including Puff Daddy, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Lil Kim, Raekwon, and Method Man. Everyone in the crowd was on their feet as the hottest names in Hip Hop performed their biggest hits, and the HOT 97 legendary DJs spun all night long. This year’s line-up is sure to bring that energy back to Newark! Taking the stage is Travis Scott, whose newest album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, not only debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 charts, but also features some of Hip Hop’s most elite artists. Scott is sure to have a few tricks up his sleeves as he celebrates the holidays with HOT 97 this December.

Also taking the stage is Young Thug, who was just featured on the cover of XXL with his mentor, Gucci Mane, and Joey Bada$$, who is gearing up to release his upcoming album, A.A.B.A. They’ll be joined by Jidenna, who’s song “Long Live the Chief” was just featured in an episode of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix, and Kehlani, whose recent single “CRZY” has been described as, “an explosive expression of self-confidence,” by Stereogum (Stereogum, Sept. 2016).

HOT 97’s Hot for the Holidays is presented by Boost Mobile, and made HOT by SJ Presents and MetroPlus Health Plan.
