The show featured Migos and several rap acts. It brought in almost $1 million in revenue according to Coliseum officials.
Thomas Rhett show wasn’t even a close second at $416,099 in revenue.
And now it’s time to do it again — and maybe even in a bigger way than last year.
Promoters for Black Spring Break dropped the 2018 Spring Fest lineup on their social media pages Monday evening. It has been shared on Facebook more than 12,000 times.
The 2018 show will be April 14th. It features Lil’ Wayne, Jeezy, Rick Ross, 2Chainz, Yo Gotti, Moneybagg Yo and NBA Young Boy. The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $42 and are available at Ticketmaster.com.
“The lineup this year is epic,” said Black Spring Break promoter Derrian Burns. “This show is going to be even bigger than last year.”
