AdvertisementThe line-up for Juicy Fest 2023 has reached it’s final form with the addition of two iconic RnB and hip-hop stars from the 2000s ready to bring the nostalgia.
Influential hip hop superstar Chingy, and RnB loverboy Lloyd have been added to the stacked International Juicy Fesl line-up of Nelly, Ne-Yo, Ja Rule, Bow Wow, Xzibit, Pretty Ricky, Mya and Twista.
In the early noughties it wasn’t a party without Chingy blessing the speakers. He collaborated with Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Dogg, Trina, Tyrese, Ludacris and more, and single-handedly influenced cultural slang with ‘thurr’ and ‘hurr’ following his smash hit ‘Right Thurr’. Other hits include Pullin Me Back, One Call Away, Holidae Inn, Dem Jeans and more.
As a member of the Murder Inc record label, Lloyd smooth and soulful sound made him a key player in any 2000s R&B playlist with tracks such as Get It Shawty, Lay It Down, Southside and You.
He collaborated with some of the world’s biggest music stars including Drake, Nicki Minaj and the Young Money posse singing the hook on Bedrock, as well as artists such as 50 Cent, Ashanti, Ja Rule and Lil Wayne.
Juicy Festival, or Juicy Fest as it’s colloquially named, is a R18 one-day nostalgic Hip Hop and R&B festival scheduled for eight shows across Australia and New Zealand this summer including Tauranga, Napier, Palmerston North, Auckland, Whangārei, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Juicy Fest Co-Founders Rawiri Nelson & Kane Sala said the marketing approach was about genuine connection to an entire genre that influenced pop culture for so many in New Zealand & Australia,
“With 90s & 2000s music on the resurgence through a multitude of samples in the Top 100 pop charts of the last year it makes sense to bring this music back to the Southern Hemisphere. We’re really focused on triggering some deep nostalgia for so many who grew up to this era of Hip-Hop and R&B.” Sala said.
“After the last couple of year of restrictions people want to enjoy freedoms again. We wanted to take them back to a how they felt when these songs dropped back in the day, simpler times full of good memories and no worries. We’ve all faced Covid restrictions in recent years and we’re all pleased to see the comeback of the live music scene,” Nelson said.
Juicy Fest promoters Glenn Meikle and Matthew Spratt said the Tauranga, Palmerston North and Brisbane shows had already sold out but they were now working towards moving each one to bigger venues to cater to the strong demand.
“Ticket sales are strong across all shows and many people are buying tickets to shows outside of their home centres, which is not only good news for the local economy but for tourism as a whole,” Spratt said.
Juicy Fest 2023 gets underway on January 5, providing a sense of nostalgia for everyone who loves the RnB and hip hop sounds of the 90s and 2000s.
