Billboard is proud to announce Billboard Dance‘s Ones To Watch Live, presented by events group Brownies & Lemonade. The showcase marks Billboard Dance‘s first full-fledged entry into the live space.
Featured on the bill are five up-and-comers who have been featured in the vertical’s monthly discovery series, “Ones To Watch:” KRANE (Apr. 2018), Golden Features (Feb. 2019), Elley Duhé (Aug. 2018), ford. (Nov. 2018) and INZO (Nov. 2018).
“Between the annual Billboard Dance 100 list, Ones To Watch series, and their commitment to comprehensive journalism in the electronic space, Billboard Dance is a brand that we’re excited to partner with on this very special L.A. showcase,” says Chad Kenney, creative director of Brownies & Lemonade. “As dance music continues to evolve and reach even greater heights of exposure, it is more important than ever to feature unique, emerging talent that will inform the next chapter of this evolution. ‘Billboard Dance’s Ones to Watch Live’ show embodies that sentiment and we’re looking forward to where it goes from here.”
Billboard Dance’s David Rishty adds, “We’re thrilled to partner with Brownies & Lemonade on this showcase. They’ve defined themselves as a true tastemaker in the dance space and have built an incredibly loyal, trusting fanbase. Teaming up with them felt like a natural pairing and furthers Billboard Dance‘s key initiative to be a leading voice in artist discovery for dance music.” Brownies & Lemonade has previously activated showcases and stages at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Ultra and several other major festivals.
