Taking place just days before Juneteenth and during Black Music Month, the Blavity House Party made its debut in Nashville this past weekend. Hosted by Zach Fox and Bridget Kelly, the inaugural festival took place June 14-15 at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium in the “Music City,” bringing the community together for a weekend of good music and good vibes.

This year’s headliners were Lil Wayne and Monica, in addition to a hodgepodge of performers from different genres including Grammy Award-winning R&B star Victoria Monét, Blxst, legendary R&B group Dru Hill, Jamaican songstress Shenseea, New Orleans’ own Big Freedia, and more. Not to mention, there was a long list of captivating sets from Ryan Leslie, Leon Thomas, Lil’ Mo, Uncle Waffles, Travis Porter, and Domani to name a few. Unfortunately, Lil Wayne was a no-show, and Victoria Monét had to cancel her performance due to health issues – which she addressed last month (May 20) in a since-deleted Instagram Story post.

But the party must go on, and it did. As a special treat to fans, the Blavity team surprised festivalgoers by adding Rick Ross, K. Michelle, and Lil Scrappy to the lineup. Elsewhere throughout the weekend, the emerging talent held their own, too. From rising country star Reyna Roberts to 16-year-old DJ Sophia Rocks – who was the youngest artist to perform at the festival – the future of music looks promising.

On the performance front, the highlight of the weekend goes to Dru Hill. The guys stole the show as they performed live renditions of their biggest hits to celebrate their 25th anniversary, including songs like “Tell Me” and “These Are The Times.” And of course, Sisqó opted to perform his platinum-selling single, “Thong Song,” which brought the crowd to its feet.

Beyond the music, the vibes were high all weekend in Nashville. The Blavity House Party also celebrated the Black community, shinning a spotlight on the city’s local vendors and eateries like well-known pizza spot Slim & Husky’s, among others. This curated approach and attention to detail created an immersive experience where attendees could get a taste of Nashville culture in a controlled environment.

The inaugural Blavity House Party was a feast for the eyes, and it’s exciting to see what lies ahead for the brand and the Nashville community.
