On Wednesday (Sept. 1), four-time Grammy-winner H.E.R. — in partnership with Live Nation Urban — announced the star-studded roster of performers set to hit the stage at the highly anticipated Lights On Festival, which will occur in Concord, Calif. on Sept. 18 and 19.
H.E.R. will headline the two-day festival, while Erykah Badu, Bryson Tiller, Ari Lennox, Ty Dolla $ign, Keyshia Cole and many more stars will perform some of their fan-favorite hits. H.E.R.’s Lights On Festival, which first took place in 2019, marks the first female-owned and curated music festival in decades.
In addition to exciting performances, Lights On Festival is expected to deliver fun-filled attractions, including a film screening tent, live art installations, an arcade, R&B museum and guitar lounge.
H.E.R. is also celebrating the recent success of her debut studio album, Back of My Mind, which dropped in June and peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200. In an Instagram post, she announced the album is officially certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
“My RCA FAM!!!!!! ‘Best Part’ is 5x Platinum and ‘Come Through’ is going Gold! I’m so grateful,” wrote the singer-songwriter. “Thank you to all the people that helped create this album. Thank you to the lovers of music. She gang. All the fans. Love y’all. This means SO much to me and my journey. NOW LET’S GET ON THE ROAD!”
