Janet Jackson, Black Eyed Peas And More Will Lead The Australia’s RNB Fridays Lineup

13th August 2019 | Category: Concerts

Heading to Australia for the first time in eight years, Janet Jackson has been revealed as this year’s headliner for RNB Fridays 2019.

Other fellow hip hop artists that are scheduled to join Jackson in leading the lineup for Australia’s biggest party are Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Jason Derulo.

The lineup of the fourth annual celebration of hip-hop and urban music which takes place across Australia and New Zealand this November will host other prominent artists such as Keri Hilson, Sisqo, J-Kwon, and an unidentified “mystery artist”, with Fatman Scoop returning as emcee.

The day-long experience will visit all five of Australia’s largest cities, opening November 8th at Perth’s HBF Park, then on to Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium, Adelaide Showgrounds, Brisbane Showgrounds and Sydney’s Giants Stadium on November 16th.

The event is presented by Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring (both part of the Mushroom Group) plus Hit Network and they promise that this edition will be the biggest one yet. The production has seen huge growth since its inaugural year in 2016, and now, organizers have big plans to take the brand even further.

The plans discussed all focus on taking the event and concept into further international markets in 2020 and beyond. This means that we might soon see the launch of a number of events next year in the U.K and Europe, as well as “potentially some Asian” territories, according to Matt Gudinski, Illusive Presents co-founder.

The event has become so popular that in 2018 it was the biggest touring festival in Australia. It followed a similar trajectory in New Zealand.

With big plans on the horizon, the event might take over more international markets in the near future.
