To celebrate everything flashy and colorful about #SremmLife, Rae Sremmurd are back for a second year with Sremm Fest. Held just two days before Christmas, it’s a one-day affair meant to celebrate the brothers’ success in their home town of Tupelo, Mississippi.
Hosted by Rae Sremmurd, this year’s performers include Diplo, Young Dolph and Big K.R.I.T., along with others yet to be announced. Swae Lee said about the second Sremm Fest, “We’re going 10 times harder than last year. We’re doing more giveaways and we’ve got surprise guests coming through. You don’t wanna miss it. #SremmLife.”
Slim Jxmmi offered an even bigger boast. “This is the best thing ever. We’re gonna show you why we have the key to the ‘Sip,” he said, referencing his home state.
Sremm Fest continues hip-hop’s tradition of rappers holding festivals in or near their hometowns. The Roots recently expanded The Roots Picnic from their home town of Philadelphia to New York, and Chance the Rapper held Magnificent Coloring Day in Chicago in late September.
Sremm Fest will take place on December 23rd at Bancorp South Arena. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, October 18th at Sremmfest.com.
