The inaugural edition of Day N Vegas will run November 1-3 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, in Nevada.

The rap-heavy music festival has assembled a lineup that rivals Miami's Rolling Loud, which has been dubbed the predominant rap festival in America over the years.

J. Cole, who recently shared a pair of new tracks from his label Dreamville's upcoming compilation, will kick off the festival on November 1, while Travis Scott will be headlining on November 2. Kendrick Lamar will close out Day N Vegas's inaugural edition on November 3.

Among the most notable names set to perform at the event are Tyler, the Creator, Migos, 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, Juice WRLD, Lil Nas X, Liguel, Goldlink and Kali Uchis.

They will be joined on stage by Flatbush Zombies, Denzel Curry, Lil Mosey, Megan Thee Stallion, Blueface, Polo G and more.

Tickets, ranging from $299 through $899 plus fees, will go on sale on June 28 at noon (PST). Fans can already register for a pre-sale on the festival site.
