Hip-hop fans of the Valley, get ready to get hyped. The Pot of Gold Music Festival just dropped the lineup for its 2019 edition, and it includes a huge array of blockbuster hip-hop artists.
Luckyman Concerts, the founders of the annual three-day festival, have announced that Lil Wayne, Cardi B, Young Thug, Post Malone, Lil Pump, Lil Baby, Ski Mask the Slump God, Jhené Aiko, and Young Dolph will all perform at Pot of Gold 2019, which takes place from March 15 to 17.
Other artists scheduled to appear at the festival include Tinashe, Doja Cat, Saint
In other words, better clear your schedule for St. Patrick’s Day weekend.
It’s arguably the biggest lineup of talent to date for the St. Patrick’s Day-themed music festival, which launched back in 2015 and typically has featured a mix of hip-hop, rock, and reggae artists in previous years.
There’s a couple of other changes in store for Pot of Gold 2019. According to promoters, the festival will move from Rawhide in Chandler (where it took place the past few years) to the much larger Steele Indian School Park in central Phoenix. Performances will take place on two stages that will be set up in the park.
It should come as good news for the estimated 20,000 people who reportedly attend Pot of Gold each year, as the park is centrally located and won't involve a 30-minute drive to the outskirts of the Valley.
The festival will also add a midway filled with carnival-style rides and games for its 2019 edition.
Finally, Pot of Gold 2019 will be a co-promotion of Luckyman and Steve LeVine Entertainment, the Scottsdale-based entertainment and events company that's behind local nightclub shows and has previously put on the Soundwave Music Festival.
Per the lineup announcement, hip-hop will be featured on both Saturday, March 16, and Sunday, March 17. The artists and acts for the festival's first day on Friday, March 15, are still unknown as of this writing.
Tickets to the festival go on sale on Monday at 10 a.m. Arizona time via the Pot of Gold website.
