Kota the Friend and ®fltbys have crossed the pond, with tonight’s London Flight Night initiating a four part stop of the music festival in several, prominent European cities.
Following sold out shows in NYC and Denver,®fltbys have invited top emerging talent in London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris to perform alongside Kota. Supported by a mix of hand-picked US artists, and local talent in London, tonight is sure to be an unforgettable celebration of musical talent and creative freedom.
“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.”
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. This will include the latest crop of talent from each European stop, starting with tonight’s local London talent.
®fltbys has announced the lineup for tonight’s show, which includes the following performers.
Manhattan born emcee C-God4Life blends effortless flow with hard hitting rhymes on a discography that has caught the attention of NYC staples including Jadakiss, Dave East and more. C-God will join ®fltbys for all four festival dates in Europe.
Artz’s musical journey began in Brooklyn at just 17 years of age. His technical mastery as an emcee has led to coverage on Hot 97, and coverage on major media outlets such as Revolt and Rap Radar. He has featured on tracks with artists such as Dreamville’s Ari Lennox and Duckwrth.
UK rapper Os uses potent lyricism and superb storytelling to capture the human element in his music. His lyrics draw from his distinct culture and unique upbringing, taking personal experiences and making them universal through the power of artistic sound.
Singer/songwriter Samuel Limàta marries multiple genres into a singular, cohesive sound. Raised in Queens, New York, and a current resident of the East Village, Limàta’s talents recently landed him on the title track of Kota the Friend’s highly anticipated third studio album MEMO, as well as an opening slot on Kota’s ‘Flight Night’ music festival at Sony Hall in NYC.
Following tonight’s show in London, Flight Night will take a similar approach in Amsterdam (Oct. 12th), Berlin (Oct. 13th) and Paris (Oct. 16th). The Paris show also happens to fall on Kota the Friend’s birthday! Limited tickets are still available for purchase at Flightnight.com.
