Rapper/singer Fetty Wap, known for sharing his love about his “ride or die chick” on the breakout hit Trap Queen, is coming to Windsor. The award-winning hip hop artist will be performing his version of what he calls Trap&B at the Coming Home Music Festival at Riverfront Festival Plaza on Saturday, September 15 along with a huge selection of electronic dance music makers.
This will be the seventh year for the EDM festival and its first year back after a one year hiatus. Rather than feature one headliner like past festivals, organizers opted for two different ones, including Wap and Canadian production and DJ duo Loud Luxury.
Wap, also known for the hits My Way” (featuring Drake) and 679, will be among near the top of a short list of the most popular acts ever staged at Festival Plaza. He is the first artist in Billboard’s history to chart his first four entries in the Top 10, simultaneously beating a record once held by The Beatles, and Trap Queen has received more than one billion YouTube views and charted for 25 consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Top 10.
Organizers are hoping to attract a crowd 10,000 to the Riverfront Festival Plaza, which is about 2,000 more than this year’s Bluesfest Windsor Sunday night with 90s stars Vanilla Ice, Naughty By Nature and other rap artists.
Tickets for the event start at $25 for students, with general admission public ticket prices at $32.50, Limited VIP packages will also be available for $40. Tickets are available online at www.cominghomemusicfestival.com or at the UWSA office inside the university’s student centre. The show is for those 16 years and over.
The Coming Home Music Festival is a University of Windsor Students’ Alliance production coordinated with Element Entertainment to welcome new and returning students back to the city.
