Hip-hop stars YG, Big Boi announced for Common Ground


WEDNESDAY, March 6 — Common Ground Music Festival is returning with more big name hip-hop acts. Just announced for June 30 are YG, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Big Boi, 2 Live Crew and Trap Manny.

YG achieved mainstream success upon the release of his debut album, “My Krazy Life,” which charted at number two on the Billboard 200. A Boogie Wit da Hoodie is slowly becoming a household name as well; his album “Hoodie SZN” peaked at number one on the Billboard 200. Trap Manny, an up-and-comer, has opened for A Boogie Wit da Hoodie several times.

Big Boi, of Outkast fame, is fresh off an appearance at the Super Bowl, and many will remember 2 Live Crew for its lengthy legal battles over whether its music could be considered obscenity.

Common Ground previously announced its June 29 country music lineup, which features Cole Swindell, Chris Janson, Tracy Lawrence, Eric Chesser, Rachel Curtis and The Swift Brothers.

Single day tickets for this June 30 show will be available to the public on March 8 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.commongroundfest.com.
