After three years, JBL Fest is finally returning hosted by music icon Bebe Rexha. The three-day brand festival breaks the mold with unique events at the intersection of music, gaming and sports, bringing together voices from across cultures to give you front-row access to unexpected moments and exclusive experiences.
Grammy Award winner, global sensation and JBL ambassador Doja Cat will headline the festival with an unfiltered performance at JBL Live!, featuring JBL’s newest global ambassador, The Kid LAROI, and platinum-selling DJ/producer Martin Garrix will bring the festival to an electrifying close.
Doja launched her music career online at a young age and became an internet phenomenon after the release of her single “Mooo!” in 2018. Her star continues to rise in 2022, racking up a long list of accolades including a Grammy for Best Pop Duo Performance, four Billboard Awards (R&B Album, R&B Artist, R&B Female Artist and Viral Song) and Female Rapper of the Year at the XXL Awards. In addition to her role as JBL global ambassador, Doja Cat serves as the face of the brand’s 2022 campaign.
The energy heading in to JBL Fest 2022 extends across the globe and down under with the announcement of Australian rapper, The Kid LAROI, as JBL’s newest global ambassador. The 18 year-old phenomenon got his start in music by recording verses on his mom’s smartphone and posting across social networks, capturing the attention of music executives in 2016 when named a finalist in Triple J Unearthed, an Australian competition for discovering new artists. The Kid LAROI has leveraged his global crossover success to earn a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. The multi-talented artist who crosses genres with his powerful lyrics and influence on songwriting will make his JBL debut at JBL Live!
Performances across the spectrums of pop, rap and EDM will close each night of the festival, punctuating each day like only JBL can.
Opening night will feature an authentic performance from pop sensation Bebe Rexha and platinum-selling DJ/producer Martin Garrix, one of the most successful DJ/producers championing the pop and electronic scene, will blast his biggest hits to close out JBL Fest.
