Kendrick Lamar and Eminem to Headline 2018 Firefly Music Festival
Eminem is working the spring/summer music festival circuit heavy, as it was announced that in addition to playing Coachella, Bonnaroo and others, he'll headline the Firefly Music Festival as well.
The appearances are in support of his latest album, Revival. And while reviews of the project have been mixed, his most recent single featuring 2 Chainz, the "Chloraseptic Remix," has people talking again. On the track, Em goes in on people who were critical of his project, and fans wondered who exactly he was talking about. D-12's Bizarre hopped online and clarified that Em was throwing shots at Joe Budden, though for his part, Budden isn't buying into the hype, refusing to believe that's the case.
At any rate, Eminem's summer will definitely busy. So will Kendrick Lamar's—not that it ever slowed following the release of DAMN. last April. In addition to headlining Firefly, he's remained focused on music, producing and curating the soundtrack for the much-anticipated Marvel film, Black Panther. He's also up for seven Grammys year.
As for Firefly, the festival will also include appearances from Lil Wayne, Logic, SZA, MGMT and a DJ set from the Beastie Boys' Mike D, among others.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Friday, Jan. 12) at 10 a.m. EST here.
