Lovers & Friends 2024 lineup: Janet Jackson, Backstreet Boys, Usher top stacked bill

Lovers & Friends 2024 lineup mainbar

The Lovers & Friends 2024 lineup is here and it’s one of the best single-day lineups you’ll ever see if you love R&B and hip-hop!

There are so many big names on this bill, it’s hard to call anyone a headliner. But the top billed names are Janet Jackson, Usher (performing Confessions), Backstreet Boys, Lil Wayne (performing Tha Carter III), Snoop Dogg, and Gwen Stefani. The festival takes place Saturday, May 4, at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds.

Other enticing names on the bill include Alicia Keys, Nelly Furtado, Nas, Mary J Blige, Ludacris, Ciara, Ja Rule and Ashanti, TLC, Nelly, Akon, Ne-Yo, T-Pain, and M.I.A. Many of these names have headlined 2nd-tier festivals themselves, so to see them all on one lineup is pretty nuts.

In the finer print theres some other really good names. Timbaland, Keyshia Cole, Brandy, Monica, Eve, Kelly Rowland, Craig David, Sean Paul, 6lack, Jodeci, Jason Derulo, Robin Thicke, 98 Degrees, Tyrese, Method Man & Redman, Rick Ross, Jeezy, Fat Joe, T.I., Ma$e, E-40, SWV, Ginuwine, Mya, Kelis, Dru Hill, Keri Hilson, Lupe Fiasco, Too $hort, Cam’ron, Twista, Juvenile, and more will have you vibing like it’s 1999.

Tickets for this one-day event are pretty pricy, but considering how many notable acts are billed, it makes sense. General admission passes start at $325 plus fees. GA-plus passes start at $595 plus fees. VIP passes start at $695 plus fees. The presale begins Friday, January 26 at 10 AM Pacific Time with all tickets starting at $19.99 down payment.
