Kota the Friend and his ®fltbys Music and Entertainment (Flight Boys) concert division have announced the Denver lineup for Flight Night Global Music Festival. Denver Flight Night will take place Friday, September 9th, 2022, at Cervantes Masterpiece with Kota the Friend headlining. Tickets are on sale now.
After selling out back to back nights in New York City, ®fltbys has once again attracted top local hip-hop talent to celebrate good music and creative freedom. Kota hand selected Denver artists who will use the festival to speak directly to his rabid fanbase, leaving with promising opportunities to progress their careers.
“Ever since 2008 we’ve been giving people the opportunity to get on stage, when no one else was giving the opportunity,” said Kota. “Fltbys has always been a young company of people who just want to do something but have no platform.”
Fltby’s culture, and Flight Night itself are celebrations of independence. Furthermore, the brand embraces a mission to shine the spotlight on underrepresented indie artists at each festival stop. The festival’s two, sold-out NYC shows were career-changing opportunity for native New York City musicians Sha Summers, Samuel Limata, Ace Clark, Hello O’shay, Iso Indies, Lizzy Ashliegh, Brianna Castro, Israel Autumns, Bungalow Collective and Ty Vybz.
Each artist took full advantage of their 15-minute spotlights, and Kota the Friend ended the night with an exclamation point. ““One of the things I’m most proud of about this show is seeing how all the opening acts supported each other. We rooted for each other and found ways to help and encourage one another,” said O’shay.
By the end of 2022 Kota the Friend will have given nearly 50 independent artists a platform on stage to showcase their talents. Flight Night has become the premier music festival to identify top up and coming talent.
Colorado and Kota have always had a special relationship, and the Brooklyn Lyricist’s most streamed song pays homage to it’s namesake.
fltbys has announced the final roster of artists who will open the show for Kota the Friend:
While Denver (Cervantes, 9/9/22) and Harrisburg (HMAC 11/11/22) are next up, FLTBYS has announced international stops in Paris, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Australia, and New Zealand.
