Atlanta-born rapper Young Thug teamed up with AEG Presents and AVI Entertainment for his new festival named Family Business, set to take place on Saturday, 31 August 2019.
Young Thug follows in the footstep of many of his peers by pioneering his own music festival, Family Business. The festival is set to take place at The Bomb Factory in Dallas, Texas, in a day-long festival on Saturday, 31 August 2019.
The Family Business Instagram page made an official announcement regarding the festival, along with a promotional video posted on Tuesday, 21 May 2019, that reads: “Welcome to the Family, Dallas! August 31st, 2019, Line-Up & Ticket Info coming soon.”
The promotional video features many offbeat visuals, beginning with a shot of a rotating multi-coloured skull, a caged anomaly and a glistening yellow lake, all shot with a yellow-tinged film camera effect. The words ‘Family Business’ then flash across the screen in bold yellow block letters. This is followed by a sepia-coloured shot of an eye and Young Thug steps back, revealing himself and adjusting his glasses. As the video draws to a close, details relating to the festival, such as the date and location, appear on the screen. The video is set to Young Thug’s song, Up, featuring Lil Uzi Vert.
Family Business’ line up is as star-studded as expected, featuring Trippie Redd, Smokepurpp, Alec Beretz, Darnell Williams and of course, Young Thug. There are at least three additional acts that are yet to be announced, as well as special guests as part of the second phase of announcements.
Tickets for the Family Business music festival are available for purchase on Ticketfly.
