Kota has attracted some of the top independent hip-hop talent in Chicago to join him, in this celebration of good music and creative freedom. Chicago is a city that embraces the grind of its hometown artists; home to many emcees who are looking to add to the rich fabric of the city’s hip-hop culture. The selected artists will use the festival to speak directly to Kota’s rabid fanbase, leaving with promising opportunities to progress as musicians.
“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.”
Fltbys 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 sold-out Los Angeles show was a career-changing opportunity for native LA musicians Heaven Shamba, JUICEBOX, Nate Dae, Ajna , Hannah Got Raps and Price. “Things have been great since the Kota show”, said JUICEBOX. “I met a lot of amazing people that night who became fans.”
fltbys has announced the final roster for Chicago Flight Night, which will include the following artists:
While Chicago is in the forefront, Flight Night will take its spin on hip-hop culture on the road in 2022. Upcoming stops include shows in New York City (Sony Hall, 7/22/22), Denver (Cervantes, 9/9/22) and coming full circle to Harrisburg (HMAC 11/11/22).
Today’s Hip Hop will spend the next two weeks highlighting the biographical info, discography, and achievements of each artist. With a stacked lineup of artists in Chicago, fans of Kota are sure to find a new emcee to appreciate.
The Chicago show is nearing full capacity, and tickets for New York are on sale now. Limited tickets can be purchased at flightnight.com.
