After hosting the annual Summer Jam concert on and off for 27 years, radio station KMEL is now extending the brand flavor to a new event.
Legends of Summer Jam, featuring past stars of the show, will take place on October 25 at Oracle Arena in Oakland. Headliners announced on the station today include the Bay Area's own E-40, Midwest legends Bone Thugs N Harmony and Twista, and a slew of Southern artists (T.I., Mystikal, Juvenile, and Mannie Fresh). More acts are expected to be announced — and hopefully the lineup will include more locals.
Tickets go on sale on July 18, but KMEL is already holding on-air ticket giveaways.
