This marks the traveling festival’s first event outside of Texas.

ScoreMore Shows has announced the first-ever JMBLYA music festival outside of Texas. JMBLYA Arkansas is slated to take place at Walmart AMP in the city of Rogers on Oct. 5.

The single-day festival will feature performances from Juice WRLD, Playboi Carti, DaBaby, Murda Beatz, Lil Keed and OMB Peezy.

JMBLYA regularly hosts its hip-hop festival in Dallas and Austin in May and has seen upwards of 30,000 attendees across each sold-out day. The multi-day, multi-city traveling festival has seen appearances from Travis Scott, J. Cole, Chance The Rapper, Lil Wayne, Future, Post Malone, Migos, Young Thug, Kevin Gates, Lil Uzi Vert and more.

“We're always looking to identify new opportunities and when a colleague of ours came to share their experience with shows in Arkansas, we knew we had to explore it. Our business has always been about bringing festivals to places that don't typically have them and experiences at price points that are more affordable for the fans,” said president and co-founder of ScoreMore Shows Sascha Stone Guttfreund, in a statement.

The traveling festival aims to curate a lineup of top hip-hop stars alongside rising artists for a new region in Arkansas. Festival organizers will continue to put on shows throughout Texas in 2020.

“Our original intention was for JMBLYA to stay a Texas-centric brand and launch entirely new concepts in new markets like we have with Neon Desert and Mala Luna in addition to our partnerships in Dreamville and Astroworld. But the more time we spent talking to locals about our event, the more we kept hearing statements like, ‘Why don't you just bring JMBLYA out here?' The kids all love that brand and they want to experience it right here, closer to home in Arkansas,’” added Stone Guttfreund. “Well, we have listened, and after years of planning, we look forward to seeing you all in October. And to our Texas family, don’t worry because we aren’t going anywhere and look forward to seeing you all again next year in 2020.”

Ticket prices range from $45 to $149 plus applicable fees and can be purchased beginning Friday at 10 a.m. local time. JMBLYA will also offer three VIP packages for the event, which will each include early entry, a branded JMBLYA backpack and hat and a disposable camera.
