Some say, “the future is female,” and Live Nation Urban is working towards that with their new series.
The entertainment juggernaut has produced an all-female series titled “Femme It Forward” that will be headlined by Cardi B, City Girls, and Teyana Taylor.
“Since our inception in 2017, Live Nation Urban continues to create opportunities for emerging and established urban artists — both on the stage and behind the scenes. This past year has been an exceptional one for women in music and entertainment, and with the incredible contributions of women, it is fitting that we honor the future of music and its continued steps on the path to inclusion,” said Heather Lowery, Live Nation Urban Vice President of Talent & Touring.
In addition to concerts, the series will also feature conferences and panels promoting unity amongst women. The series kicked off at the beginning of the month at Harvard University with Rico Nasty performing and it concludes in Dallas, TX on Oct. 17.
Jorja Smith, Kali Uchis, Jill Scott, Faith Evans, Tweet, Brandy, Monica, Ashanti, Amerie, Keri Hilson, Lil Mo, Mya, Ari Lennox, and Brianna Cash are amongst others who will also be performing during the series.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (Apr. 19) at 10 am EST via Live Nation. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to organizations whose mission supports the advancement of women.
