Lovers and Friends Festival

Usher and Lauryn Hill will headline the Lovers & Friends Festival in Las Vegas in 2022. The Hip-Hop and R&B extravaganza will be a nonstop parade of 90’s and 2000’s musical nostalgia. Usher opened his Vegas residency to adoring fans earlier this month. It’s only right that he headlines this widely anticipated festival in the same city. 

The music fest features some heavy-hitters. In addition to Usher and Lauryn Hill headlining, Ludacris, TLC, and other headliners will perform. 

The festival will finally make its debut next year.

The Lovers & Friends Festival was originally supposed to take place in Los Angeles. It was rescheduled twice in 2020. However, those final plans were abandoned due to the global pandemic. Live Nation, Snoop Dogg, and Bobby Dee will present the festival.

The full Lovers & Friends lineup is as follows:

Usher, Lauryn Hill, Ludacris, Lil Jon, TLC, Ciara, Nelly, Ashanti, Ja Rule, Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Brandy, Monica, Timbaland, Akon, T-Pain, Lil Kim, Sean Paul, Fabolous, Eve, The-Dream, Ginuwine, Xscape, Jodeci, Keith Sweat, Mase, Fat Joe, Cassie, Twista, Mya, Cam’ron, SWV, Sean Kingston, Trick Daddy, Pretty Ricky, Joe, Dru Hill, Next, 112, Mario, Donell Jones, Foxy Brown, Trina, Tweet, Amerie, Kelis, Juvenile, Too Short, Ying Yang Twins, Mike Jones, Lloyd, Jon B, Kevin Lyttle, Baby Bash, Frankie J and Nina Sky.

Usher and Lauryn bring excitement, but potential controversy looms

In 2019, Lil Kim was slated to perform at the original Lovers and Friends fest. She later announced that she had nothing to do with the event. Her name was still used to promote the event. Fans began to wonder if the lineup and festival were real, hoping to avoid another Fyre Fest-like dilemma. Lauryn Hill isn’t exactly known for her punctuality, so it’s hard to predict who concertgoers will actually see perform. 

The Lovers & Friends Festival will take place at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds Saturday, May 14, 2022. 

Tickets start at $175 and will be available for a special presale on August 2 at 10 a.m.  General public tickets will become available for purchase at 2 p.m.
