Hot 97 to Livestream Summer Jam 2015 Exclusively on Tidal
Hot 97 announced this morning that their annual Summer Jam concert, billed as "the biggest hip hop concert there is," will be livestreamed exclusively on Tidal this Sunday, June 7.
The concert has been livestreamed since 2012 free on the Hot 97 website, but the New York City radio station elected to switch to an exclusive agreement with Tidal to "not only able to provide fans with the hottest content, but also able to work with the biggest emerging music platform out today," according to Deon Levingston, general manager of Emmis NY.
This year's lineup includes Kendrick Lamar, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Big Sean, Fabolous & Friends, Meek Mill, Ty Dolla $ign & Friends, Omarion, and Fetty Wap, among others. The concert begins at 2 pm ET.
