This year’s lineup features a headlining performance from chart-topping rapper Future, who has released six projects since the beginning of 2015. Rap duo Rae Sremmurd is also set to perform. The duo is scheduled to release their highly anticipated album Sremmlife 2 this June. Carnage, producer of hits “I Like Tuh” by ILoveMakonnen and “Bricks” by Migos, will be playing a set. Other performers include “2 Phones” rapper Kevin Gates, R&B singer Kehlani, Keith Ape, Jazz Cartier, and Noodles. Post Malone will serve as a special guest at the festival.

The Red Ledger will be giving away two tickets to the festival to one student through a Twitter contest. In order to win the tickets, you must post a photo on Twitter that shows your Leopard pride using the hashtag #LojoJMBLYA. In order to be eligible, contest entrants must be current Lovejoy High School students and must return a parent-signed waiver.
