Following rumors of an epic charity gig, TIDAL has announced its second annual philanthropic festival in conjunction with New York’s Robin Hood organization.
As expected, Beyoncé will headline the TIDAL X: 1015 show, but Jay Z isn’t currently on the bill. Instead, the star-studded lineup includes Ms. Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj, Common, T.I., and more.
The benefit concert goes down Oct. 15 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. A TIDAL and American Express pre-sale begins tomorrow (Sept. 22) at 10 a.m. EST with general tickets going on sale Monday (Sept. 26).
Aside from those listed above, the event is also set to feature Robin Thicke, Emeli Sandé, Prince Royce, DNCE, Blood Orange, Salva, Cipha Sounds, Ross One, Angie Martinez, Bebe Rexha, Lil Yachty, Mark E. Bassy, Kevin Garrett, Danielle Bradbery, Sir the Baptist, and Levi Carter.
It’s all for a good cause. Proceeds are expected to help Robin Hood continue to fight poverty in New York and they are also meant to aid educational non-profit organizations. TIDAL X: 1015 follows last year’s TIDAL X: 1020 show, which raised more than $1.5 million.
Queen Bey is headlining this show just as her “Formation World Tour” wraps. The critically-acclaimed trek closes out Oct. 7 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
