“Jmblya going nationwide is the culmination of the idea of bringing an affordably priced festival experience to markets that don’t have something like it,” ScoreMore president and founder Sascha Stone Guttfreund said in a statement. “We are known for curated events that pair big-name acts with future superstars. If you look back on our lineups, you’ll see that many of the openers we book later go on to become headliners.”
Performers at past Jmblya events have included Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott, Lil Nas X, J. Cole, PostMalone, Lil Wayne, Migos and Kehlani.
