Making its debut at Nashville Municipal Auditorium on June 14-15th, 2024Blavity House Party encompasses all these crucial house party elements and blows it up to festival scale. The result is an event that is both intimate and grand: a celebration of Black joy in the Music City, balancing can’t miss onstage moments with the small gestures that turn a group of strangers into a community. We at Audible Treats are thrilled to work with Blavity House Party in its inaugural edition.

The first festival presented by Blavity Media Group, the two-day, multi-stage House Party features a cross-generational array of talented performers, who have defined the sound of hip-hop and R&B for the past three decades. The headliners are heavy-hitting: Lil Wayne brings his bottomless bag of hits, spanning his dozens of albums and mixtapes, while proud southerner Monica offers her golden pipes during the festival’s second night (you know she never gets down on “The First Night”). Beyond the headliners is an excellent undercard, featuring the GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter Victoria Monét, West Coast tunesmith Blxst, Baltimore’s favorite R&B group Dru Hill, acclaimed artist/producer Ryan Leslie, dancehall queen Shenseea, amapiano diva Uncle Waffles, rising R&B heartthrob Leon Thomas, Philly’s own Freeway, and the one and only Big Freedia. Beyond the performing artists, Blavity curates a collection of tastemaking DJs to keep the house party going, with help from hosts Zack FoxBridget Kelly, and Mani Millss.

The diverse lineup is only a small part of what Blavity House Party has to offer. The event shines a spotlight on Nashville’s vibrant Black community, bringing a complement of local vendors and restaurants, including neighborhood fave pizza & wings joint Slim & Husky’s and local tastemakers Nash Feels, who specialize in showcasing Nashville’s Black community and cowboy culture. Before and after the two-day festival, Blavity connects with local partners to present a club night, a comedy show, a brunch, a fitparty, and more.
