Friday morning, Tidal announced its third annual Tidal X: Brooklyn benefit concert. The show will happen on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn (a.k.a. the house that Hov built), and will be hosted by Angie Martinez.
While past Tidal X shows have featured Beyoncé, Jay Z, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj, Alessia Cara, Lil Yachty, and many more, this years lineup below. Tidal announced in a statement that all proceeds from the show will go to “organizations that support relief and recovery for those affected by the unprecedented natural disasters.” Those groups will include Global Giving, All Hands Volunteers, Kids in Need Foundation, Direct Relief, One America Appeal, Greater Houston Community Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union, Miami Community Foundation, and more.
Set to take place October 17th in the borough’s Barclays Center, the event will boast performances from JAY-Z, DJ Khaled, Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Vic Mensa, Yo Gotti, Joey Bada$$, Fifth Harmony, ASAP Ferg, Fat Joe, and Remy Ma.
Other artists scheduled to take the stage: Kaskade, Daddy Yankee, Jessie Reyez, Iggy Azalea, Willow Smith, Belly, Princess Nokia, Tee Grizzley, Chloe x Halle, Cipha Sounds, and Chris Brown. Local radio personality Angie Martinez will host the concert, and Hamilton star Lin Manuel-Miranda and other longtime New Yorker Rosie Perez are expected to make cameo appearances. Beyoncé was rumored to also be headlining alongside husband JAY-Z, but representatives have since quashed those claims.
Tidal members will naturally have the first shot at tickets, which they can grab starting at noon ET on Friday by going here. The non-Tidal-having masses will have to wait until Sept. 26th to get their tickets via Ticketmaster.
